Pure Virgin Vinyl, 180 Gram, Special Gatefold Edition. Sonny Rollins' classic 1966 album Alfie showcases the saxophonist performing music composed for the British film by the same name. It was arranged and conducted by Oliver Nelson and features superlative performances by the leader, who is accompanied by such co-stars as Kenny Burrell, Jimmy Cleveland, J.J. Johnson and Roger Kellaway. The album reached #17 on the R&B Billboard chart and was given a rating of 4½ out of five stars on Al/Music by critic Rovi Staff, who stated that "Tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins loaned his flair for the dramatic to the score for the film Alfie, accompanying the story of what the liner notes describe as 'the involuntary education of a hipster.' Rollins attempts to capture the textures of life through his incisive and energetic playing, his coherent improvisations, and variations on musical themes.
