Sonny Rollins/George Duke/Stanley Clarke/Al Foster - Live Under The Sky '81 - CD2
At the time of this live performance Sonny Rollins and his all-star rhythm section were fresh from the studio where they had made his Love At First Sight 1980 LP for Milestone records. Most of the set list is taken from that recording with the addition of some perennial Rollins classics. As always Sonny's solos are energy and invention personified. For this Japanese tour he decided to complement his signature tenor with soprano sax. His relatively rare excursions on the straight horn are always worth seeking out.
George Duke, Stanley Clarke and Al Foster support the saxophonist masterfully and have plenty of solo space to showcase their considerable talents. Performed at Denen Colosseum, Tokyo, Japan on July 22, 1981 and broadcast by NHK radio.
