Echoes: Sonny's Naima

"Sonny Rollins, you heard him recently? Yeah, like some guys, you know, you call great. Sonny, he's one. He's just reached that great status, man." -- John Coltrane, 1958

From September 6, 1968, at Cafe Montmartre in Copenhagen, Denmark, Sonny Rollins Quartet performs Coltrane's composition, Naima. Kenny Drew (pic above) plays piano, Niels-Henning ├śrsted Pedersen is on bass and finally Albert Heath occupies the drum chair.
