Tenor saxophone behemoth Sonny Rollins was pioneering the pianoless trio at the time of these 1957 shows. A Night at the Village Vanguard is both his live album debut and the first commercial concert recording to be captured at the subterranean Manhattan jazz institution. With either Elvin Jones or Pete La Roca on drums and Wilbur Ware or Donald Bailey on double bass, Rollins deftly deconstructs standards like "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "I'll Remember April" with inspired fury. Rollins' initial tireless examination of "What Is This Thing Called Love?" is followed by Jones' masterful drum solo, while Ware's subtle support and perfect note choices radiate on "I Can't Get Started," the album's sole ballad.

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully.
