Lucky for us, every once in a while Rollins allows some of these tunes to surface. This past December, he released Road Shows Vol. 1 (Emarcy), a collection of previously unreleased live cuts that includes gems such as "Tenor Madness" and Some Enchanted Evening," the latter recorded during a 2007 Carnegie Hall concert with two musicians who are legendary figures in their own right Christian McBride on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. expect to hear these and many other songs that have marked this living jazz legend's 50-year career.
