“The Bridge was originally recorded and released in 1962. His pianoless quartet consisted of guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Ben Riley.

Voted by Miles Davis as the greatest tenor saxophonist ever, Sonny Rollins (also known as Uncle Don) has built up an impressive resume with essential Jazz recordings. One of these is The Bridge, originally recorded and released in 1962. Rollins started out in the early Fifties, averaging a whopping 10 album releases per year in the second half of the decade. After taking a much needed three-year breather, Rollins picked up the pieces in 1962 with The Bridge in a pianoless quartet consisting of guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Ben Riley. He explores four standards and two brand new compositions, one of which the title track.” - Music On Vinyl

“In a pianoless quartet with guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and drummer Ben Riley, Rollins explores four standards (including "Without a Song" and "God Bless the Child") plus two fiery originals, highlighted by the title cut. The interplay between Rollins and Hall is consistently impressive, making this set a near-classic and a very successful comeback.” - AllMusic
