This is a five cd set of Sonny's complete Riverside and Contemporary recordings from 1956-1958.The albums are
Monk " Brilliant Corners "
Sonny "Way Out West"
Kenny Dorham " Jazz Contrasts "
Sonny " The Sound of Sonny"
Abbey Lincoln " That's Him"
Sonny " Sonny Rollins Plays ,Freedom Suite and Sonny Rollins and the Contemporary Masters".
This is a priceless collection that I have in Riverside box set with excellent notes but unfortunately not the original liner notes.
I've owned this for over 15 years and you can still find this on Amazon but I'm not certain you can still get this issue.
"Way Out West", with all of the outtakes is probably my favourite Sonny Rollins.
Next would probably be "Saxophone Colossus" (Moritat) and "The Bridge".
Incredible jazzman! One of my very favourites.
all excellent suggestions.
