180 gm repress of this jazz classic. this 1956 outing pairs the tenor great with miles davis's rhythm section of the time: pianist red garland, bassist paul chambers, and philly joe jones. most significantly, the title track represents the only recorded meeting between rollins and john coltrane (also a davis quintet member at the time), a fierce cutting contest that finds the two legends pushing each other to great effect. the remainder of the session finds rollins in a warm, relaxed mood, rolling through a typically eclectic repertoire and adding the lightly swinging original "paul's pal." his respect for melody and emphasis on tone shine through clearly.
