Silver City (A Celebration Of 25 Years Of Milestone)

Sonny Rollins

The noted jazz critic Gary Giddins — an articulate defender of Rollins’s Milestone period and one capable of assessing his work in context — has done such an expert job of cherry-picking the best songs on his various Milestone records from the ’90s, that the second disc on Silver City captures late-period Rollins in the studio better than any freestanding release, with the possible exception of Old Flames.
