Label: Doxy Records/Emarcy
Hell of a birthday party we got here. Sonny Rollins celebrated turning 80 with a September 2010 fete at NYC's Beacon Theatre, now regarded as The Jazz Event of the Decade thanks to fellow saxophone colossus Ornette Coleman's shocking cameo on a blistering, 20-minute version of "Sonnymoon for Two." But the second installment in Sonny's live series has plenty more to offer: more Beacon tracks ("I Can't Get Started" is beautiful), more incendiary guest stars (from Roy Haynes to Roy Hargrove to Jim Hall), and plenty of fearless, boundless energy from the man himself. Essential.
