Description

Freedom Weaver: The 1959 European Tour Recordings is the first official release of the ‘Saxophone Colossus’ Sonny Rollins’ European tour in 1959 with bassist Henry Grimes, and drummers Pete La Roca, Kenny Clarke and Joe Harris. Available previously only as a bootleg release, this is the first official release in cooperation with Sonny Rollins and is the first release on vinyl (a Record Store Day exclusive) as a limited-edition 180-gram 4-LP box set, and deluxe 3-CD set. Freedom Weaver includes an elaborate 56-page booklet with rare photos by Ed van der Elsken, Jean-Pierre Leloir, Bob Parent and many others; lead liners by jazz scholar Bob Blumenthal, and new interviews with Rollins himself, Branford Marsalis, James Carter, Joe Lovano, James Brandon Lewis and Peter Brötzmann.
