Sonny Rollins’ mid-sixties experiment with bossa nova was completely different than was Stan Getz’ Jazz Samba. Rollins stayed true to his bop and avant-garde roots, using bossa nova as a surgeon uses a scalpel, to dissect and deconstruct familiar melodies and turn them into something new. This hip reinterpretation of standards is Sonny’s trademark, and in this album it’s uncompromising. The whole album is interesting and highly original.
