Down At Dawn present a reissue of Sonny Rollins's Rollins Plays For Bird, originally recorded and released in 1956. Recorded a year after Charlie Parker's passing, Rollins Plays For Byrd was the young Sonny's tribute to the bebop genius. For the occasion, Rollins leads a fine quintet featuring Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Wade Legge on piano, George Morrow on bass, and the great Max Roach on drums representing here the closest connection with Parker
