| Sonny Rollins Live In '65 and '68 (2008)
This DVD in the 'Jazz Icons' series from Naxos/Reelin' In The Years comprises two black-and-white television shows recorded in Denmark in the 1960s - picture and sound quality very good. First is a trio set recorded live at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival in 1965; with Sonny Rollins (tenor sax) are the suitably Danish Niels-Henning Orsted Pederson on double bass and Alan Dawson on drums. This part runs 55 minutes; Mr Rollins is on killer form and this would be worth the price alone. The second show comes almost like a bonus. It is a quartet job recorded in a studio setting three years later, by which time Mr Rollins is sporting a full beard and beret. He plays a half-hour set with Kenny Drew (piano), same bass player and Albert 'Tootie Heath on drums. The DVD as a whole features the following tunes, listed here in alphabetical order: Darn That Dream, Four, I Can't Started, Oleo, On Green Dolphin Street, St Thomas, Sonnymoon For Two, There Will Never Be Another You and Three Little Words. Every one a winner.
