Sonny Rollins – Here’s to The People – LP

Sonny Rollins’s usual sextet (with trombonist Clifton Anderson, pianist Mark Soskin, guitarist Jerome Harris, electric bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Steve Jordan) welcomes guest drummers Jack DeJohnette and Al Foster and, most importantly, trumpeter Roy Hargrove on two selections. Hargrove sounds fine on I Wish I Knew and Young Roy while Rollins is in good form on such songs as Why Was I Born?, Someone to Watch over Me and Long Ago and Far Away. The music is quite pleasing.” Scott Yanow –All Music Guide.
