One of the few complete duds of Sonny Rollins' career, this rambling live session is a major disappointment. His unaccompanied explorations (which in the past usually clocked in at around three minutes) gave one the impression that he would be heard best in a solo setting where he could fly freely without having to be concerned about his accompanists. Perhaps that is true, but for this concert he apparently planned nothing in advance, resulting in 56 minutes of wandering around, throwing in occasional song quotes but managing to not play anything of real value

Throughout the album, we hear Sonny continually building up spontaneous inventions without ever running out of ideas. The Solo Album" is a title to be taken quite literally when it comes to this 1985 release from the legendary sax master Sonny Rollins. The entire album is nearly an hours worth of unaccompanied solo tenor saxophone recorded live at New York's Mueseum of Modern Art. While Sonny has recorded unaccompanied sax solos before, this is the first time he had done it on an entire album and I must say, the end result is stunning!! Throughout the album, we hear Sonny continually building up spontaneous inventions without ever running out of ideas.

In other words, it sounds as if Rollins were merely warming up, playing whatever came into his mind without any thought of developing a coherent statement.
