180-Gram Colored Blue Vinyl - *Down Beat - *AllMusic. When Sonny Rollins entered the studio to record Saxophone Colossus, one of his more acclaimed albums as a leader, on June 22, 1956, he had already been a regular member of the celebrated Max Roach-Clifford Brown Quintet for half a year.

It includes his' first reading of his classic "St. Thomas" and his unforgettable version of "Moritat/ Mack the Knife". 180-GRAM COLORED BLUE VINYL - THE COMPLETE ALBUM + 1 BONUS TRACK *Down Beat / *AllMusic / Contains new specially prepared liner notes by Penguin Guide to Jazz's writer Brian Morton and by Paris' prestigious Jazz Magazine.
