Sonny Rollins - Stockholm 1974

Here's a show from Rollins' band with Rufus Harley on soprano and bagpipes and Masuo.

Only recently, thanks to a sale containing many Concord/Original Jazz Classics discs, I started picking up on Rollins' post-Impulse recording. I've had most of his early recordings, way up to "Alfie" and "East Broadway Rundown", but not much from later on, and while the later recordings aren't up to the early ones, there's plenty of terrific blowing by Rollins, and a lot of good music to be found. Here's a live show from early in his Milestone tenure for you to enjoy!

Hi Ubu,
Thanks for this one. However, there seems to be a part missing. When decompressing, it looks for a Part 3 which isn't there. As a result, the last 3 tracks are missing.
Any chance of uploading and posting the missing link?
Many thanks.

Thanx for this one UBU. I to must admit that this is an era of Sonny's career that I haven't checked out as often.
