Is this where you should start with Rollins? Of course not: Go to Saxophone Colossus or A Night at the Village Vanguard for that. But if you love jazz enough to know those albums already, do make time for this live-recording compilation. The first two cuts here are pedestrian, but the new tune "Patanjali" builds a nice head of steam. And "Solo Sonny" -- one of those extended cadenzas for which he's justly famed -- is a thrill. Rollins trades fours with the drummer for a long, rewarding stretch of "Why Was I Born." And "Don't Stop the Carnival" might as well be the saxophonist's career motto.
