5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Rollins' classic 4 décembre 2000
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Sonny Rollins leads a trio including his tenor, Max Roach on drums, and Oscar Pettiford's bass for this inspired session from 1958. Dominating this cd in time and musical achievement is the title track "The Freedom Suite". In his liner notes jazz critic Orrin Keepnews describes this extended piece as "In one sense... the reference (of freedom) is to the musical freedom of this unusual combination of composition and improvisation; in another it is to physical and moral freedom, to the presence and absence of it in Sonny's own life and in the way of life of other Americans..." This is a truly ambitious and inspired work, whatever feelings may have been driving the men behind it. The Freedom Suite is comprised of several movements, flowing from intense and driving to soft and sombre, then back again. Clocking in at nearly twenty minutes this performance is made even more impressive by how Rollins, Roach, and Pettiford keep the music even and never bog down or produce a throwaway lick. This is another classic from an intensly creative period of Sonny's career, and could easily be one of the best of all time. The final five tracks are more conventional fair, but the trio keeps up the pace. While not as striking as the title track these two standards and two waltzs still offer inspired performances. Rollins really digs into a laid back duet with Pettiford on two takes of "'Till There Was You", and almost recalls Lester Young on "Shadow Waltz". Every album Rollins cut between 1951 and his first retirement in 1959 is worth getting including this one. "The Freedom Suite" is one of those pieces of music that requires mulitple listenings to fully digest, and rewards the effort tenfold. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Forward Thinking Hard Bop Par Exellence! 24 mars 2004
Par Christopher Forbes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Something was definitely in the air in the late 50s. Though the dominant musical style in jazz was hard bop, with its bluesy amalgam of bop phrasing and 30s swing styles, many instrumentalists seemed poised to break into new territory. Coltrane was developing his complex harmonic practices in his work with the Davis Quintet and on his first solo albums. Monk was developing his quirky style into something that didn't quite fit into the prevailing bop style. Cecil Taylor had already recorded his first ground-breaking albums. In this list of "proto free jazz" classics one name often gets forgotten, that of Sonny Rollins. Perhaps it's because Rollins' music was still so tied to standards and bop phrasing, and it doesn't sound "out" the way many of the others do. But Rollins' musical concept is at least as far reaching as any developed in the late 50s, and this album is testimony to that fact.
The Freedom Suite is an example of Rollins' pioneering work in the saxophone trio genre, a genre that he was one of the first to develop. Backed by an outstanding rhythm section of underrated bassist Oscar Pettiford and the brilliant Max Roach, Rollins' "pianoless" group paved the way for the sax power trios of Ornette Coleman, Sam Rivers and Albert Ayler in the 60s. Lacking the harmonic straightjacket that a chordal instrument lays over jazz, this setting allows Rollins free reign to create his astonishing improvisations. Whether using reworked standards like Till There Was You, or Will You Still Be Mine, or his ambitious, multi-movement Freedom Suite, Rollins the improviser dominates the disc. And his profoundly logical, deeply structured and yet infectious bop phrases never disappoint.
Most impressive on the disc is the title cut. The Freedom Suite is a nearly 20 minute work, based on several jazz heads cut and arranged with overall form in mind. The compositions themselves are deftly written and catchy...but they also exhibit an underlying unity. They form a backdrop over which Rollins can unfold his unique approach to improvisation. Rather than following the boppers into greater and greater harmonic abstraction, Rollins takes a melodic approach, one that is amazingly logical and yet emotionally satisfying. Though the work is certainly not free jazz, there is a sense in which Rollins, Pettiford and Roach play the melody of the tune rather than the harmony. Though there are changes that are kept throughout the improvisations, the structuring devices are melodic and related to the compositions. In many ways, this is the most radical aspect of Rollins' work of the 50s. It leads directly to the innovations of the Coleman groups just a year later. In fact listening to The Freedom Suite and then one of Coleman's Trio discs like the Golden Circle sessions helps to show how experimental Rollins was at this time...and how rooted in tradition Coleman is. It is but a short jump from one to the other.
But this album is not only historically important...it cooks as well. Roach is as inventive a drummer as there is, and his playing here is some of the best work he's done. Most of Rollin's improvisations are in reality duo improvs with drums. There are few drummers who are as tasteful, forceful and musical as Roach. Pettiford is a wonder here. He is an able foil to Rollins both melodically and harmonically. His walking lines are inventive, strain the harmonic structure sometimes, but never break it. His duo with Rollins on Till There Was You is remarkable. This is some of the best, and most joyous playing of the hard bop era. It's a classic album and one that every jazz fan should own.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 4 1/2 A Musical Analysis: Superb Improv within Basically COnventional Structures 24 janvier 2007
Par M. Allen Greenbaum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Perhaps as well-known for its political implications/reflections as it is for its music, "Freedom Suite" is probably the first attempt by a hard bopper at the "long from" --extended improvisation lasting more than the usual 3-5 minutes. In my opinion, the master (other than the semi-classical aesthetic of Ellington, who frequently used terms such as "Suite" and "Concerto"), the master of the form is composer/bassist Charles Mingus. In contrast to these two giants, Rollins works within a trio format, thus presenting a heavier burden on each musician. Fortunately, ROllins' trio has three greats, Rollins, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Max Roach on drums. Bottom line: This is an excellent, although not "essential" (whatever that vague term means) album that's worth your time and money if you're a fan of Rollins, post-bop, the long-form, or generally consider yourself a jazz fan. What follows are more extended notes on the cuts, especially the 19-minute "Freedom Suite."

The first movement of "Freedom Suite" (19 minutes, 17 seconds) begins with a simple, fairly light riff, with drums and bass filling in between restatements. Then Sonny Rollins improvises against the riff's rhythm and harmonies--one can still hear the basic melodic structure as well. Rollins fluid sound contrasts in an interesting way with the sharply percussive, punctuated rhythm section. As is frequently the case, the improvisations move further from the basic theme, but he still makes this center a home. Bassist Petitford has an excellent, nimble solo, and then Rollins plays, this time sounding more like the rhythm section, with shorter bursts of sound introducing an exciting yet economical Max Roach solo. IN short, the first movement is fairly conventional structurally and sonically, it seems like a warm-up.

We're soon treated to a different theme, somewhat more anguished and blues-based, with superb bowed bass backing Rollins thoughtful flights and bursts. He changes tempo suddenly, and the anguish is both softer and more sullen, more thoughtful. The tone is very satisfying, neither overly dry, nor so rich that it would overshadow the emotional impact. Rollins melody and tempo conveys both bitter feelings and a sort of yearning/quiet hope. Much of it is beautiful.

The third movement has a curious energy, with the band prowling around some mysterious territory, searching, stopping, then taking off in a different direction altogether. It feels like a trapped tiger running quickly through a labyrinth, speeding and altering course. It's a very short but effective section. The final section is much more hard-boppish, propelled nicely by the tight rhythm of Roach and Petitford, with several energetic long lines by Rollins. The three band members take memorable turns, complementing each other superbly. The mood does suggest a measure of increased freedom, a breakout, with the ultimate outcome unknown In a final, elegant, statement, Rollins seems to suggest the dignity of his dream.

Things are understandably more casual on "Someday I'll Find You," (4:35) with Rollins sounding somewhat dryer (although not even approaching Jackie McLean's tone). It's most notable for the tight playing and hard bop aesthetic, and some excellent, varied drumming patterns from Max Roach. They return to the melody in the final 45 seconds or so. "Will You Be Mine" is somewhat in the same vein, with a Mingus-like conclusion. There are two versions of the lovely "Till There Was You," fans and musicologists will note that these are Take 4 (4:54) and Take 3 (4 :55). Both are slow, with Rollins playing some interesting solo breaks. I found Take 3 more satisfying, Rollins blowing a smooth, very confident sound against a "cooler" bass and drums. The tones are somewhat rounder, and the more subtle background gives Rollins' statement a clearer voice. The final cut show Rollins in a more contemplative mood, with a fine, rich Petitford solo, out of which Rollins voices snippets of sound, like fragments of some larger riff. Then, as if often the case here, he concludes on a mellow tone.

Although Rollins doesn't master the much vaunted "long form" as well as Mingus, Freedom Suite (the composition, not the album), conveys emotion, and shows improvisorial abandon within its structure. That structure is a little too constrained, although that may be due partially to the 3-piece band (as opposed to the nonets, etc., employed by Mingus). Although Rollins, at this early, stlll primarily post-bop stage, doesn't take the chances that Mingus did, his probing, exploring sounds and expression are mostly compelling, and the band is superb. Recommmended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cements Rollins' piano-less trio concept 9 juin 2014
Par Mike Tarrani - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is Rollins' third recording that employs his piano-less trio format and it establishes his sound in that format. Before going further note that there are no sound samples on this page at the time of this review. I am a firm believer that samples are the best way to convey the essence of an album because they strip away all subjectivity. You can listen to the six tracks on this album on this page: Freedom Suite.

One of the reasons why I believe that this is not only a five star album, but one of Rollins' essential recordings is because the rhythm section features two of the most melodic musicians on the scene: Oscar Pettiford on bass and Max Roach on drums. Of course Rollins' inventive playing also factors into that, and here he truly stretches on this entire album. I am sure that Pettiford and Roach behind him were inspiring him to reach for those musical heights.

Another reason why I am so enthusiastic about this album is it builds upon two earlier ones that introduced his piano-less trio format: Way Out West and A Night At The Village Vanguard. Neither this nor the other two are musically similar beyond the format because Rollins' approach to music is ever evolving.

This album is as it was originally released without the bonus tracks reissues include. All of the tracks except Freedom Suite were recorded for Riverside in NYC on February 11, 1958 (Freedom Suite was recorded in NYC on March 7, 1958).

Great two sessions from early 1958 with perfect production by great Orrin Keepnews. From his artistic peak with his legendary trio. With Till There Was You which plays Beatles some years after and great The Freedom Suite I feel like the band is playing in my room. Must for every jazz fans.
