This decent effort from Sonny Rollins finds the classic tenor saxophonist at his best on “Good Morning Heartache” and “God Bless the Child” although some of his own originals seem a touch lightweight. His backup band (which includes keyboardist Walter Davis, Jr., and guitarist Masuo) is supportive but somewhat anonymous. Nothing too essential occurs but the music is generally enjoyable.

Hi Katonah, dear friend! Glad to see you here!
Thank for the visit!
Well, i think that ''God Bless the Child'' (Herzog, Holiday) in this Rollin's interpretation is a pure gem.
Peace & love , ever
