NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Jazz Masters compiles recycled tracks taken from tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins' stint with Verve and Impulse! Records. The ten tracks are lifted from the albums Alfie, Sonny Rollins and the Big Brass, Sonny Rollins on Impulse!, Sonny Side Up, and East Broadway Rundown. Since the original discs are easily obtainable and highly recommended, there's no reason to purchase another mid-line, generic compilation of the type that jazz fans are continually bombarded with.
