Newk's Time (The Rudy Van Gelder Edition) (EP)
Released: Jan 1957
Label: Blue Note Records
Sonny Rollins' florid notes find a worthy partner in Philly Joe Jones' controlled drumming. Doug Watkins' bass also swings quite successfully, especially on the Miles Davis-penned opener, "Tune Up." Rollins is in great form all throughout, whether mixing up American and African styles on "Asiatic Raes" or finding new melodies within "Surrey With The Fringe On Top."
