The selections on Holding The Stage: Road Shows, Vol. 4, as with the entries on each album in the series, were all hand-picked by Sonny Rollins' toughest critic: Sonny Rollins. He pored over recordings from his past-a torture, no doubt, for somebody as notoriously picky about their own playing as Rollins-and came up with ten numbers that measured up to his standards. The common thread is the musical giant in the middle of it all, taking risks and going where he pleases. He never disappoints. The album opens on a Rollins concert staple-Duke Ellington's "In A Sentimental Mood," recorded in 2007 at the Barbican in London. Halfway through this enthusiastic five-minute performance, Rollins jettisons the band and proceeds to rhapsodize on the form and theme(s), zigging where you expect him to zag and ornamenting the familiar melodic strains in inimitable fashion.

Jazz: Sonny Rollins: Holding the Stage: Road Shows Vol 4. Chris Pearson. April 1 2016, 1:01am, The Times. ★ ★ ★ ☆ Respiratory problems have forced the 85-year-old American saxophonist to temporarily hang up his horn. So until he returns to the stage, this latest souvenir of his recent concerts will have to bridge the gap. It draws mostly from shows from this century with two tracks from 1979 and 1996 respectively. It isn’t a perfect collection, but followers will surely enjoy picking out gigs they might have attended. From Toulouse in 2006, . is a hard-bop workout that Rollins breaks into jagged shards before rebuilding it into a Coltrane-like Middle Eastern drone. The ballad You’re Mine You, played in Boston in 2001, couples his raw tone with a yearning vulnerability. The unaccompanied solo on In a Sentimental Mood, from London in 2007

Since the turn of the century, when he reached age 70, Sonny Rollins has recorded many of his concerts, and since 2008 he’s been dipping into them for release on his own label, Doxy Records. This is the fourth album in the series, mostly taken from performances around Europe. Wilful, peremptory, restless, unique – Rollins can’t really be judged by any standards but his own, and he’s never satisfied. Some of his ideas are riveting, others sound quite mad, but what you hear is his extraordinary mind working at full.

Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Pure, unadulterated Sonny Rollins at his best. The latest Sonny Rollins compilation of his live performances, "Road Shows, Volume 4", is "Holding the Stage", and it is a winner.

That's where the magic has always happened for him, and that's why these offerings have been so well-received. The first three volumes are already considered to be indispensable items in the storied Rollins canon, and this one stands to join them. EAC extraction logfile from 22. February 2017, 7:22.
