His recorded output includes over a dozen albums essential to any serious collection." "Yet Rollins is an enigmatic figure. The idealist who wrote the renowned and controversial Freedom Suite and who memorably declared "Jazz means no barriers" has also been prey to periods of diffidence, at times withdrawing from the music scene altogether. This revised and updated book (first published in the UK in 1998) charts in full the career of an artist who, at his best, remains one of jazz's most noble improvisers."--BOOK JACKET."
