"Recorded as a trio (the best way to hear Rollins) ... Rollins was pushing at the boundaries. The title track is a side-long, five-part suite with themes that allow Rollins and his cohorts room to roam; It is surprising this piece (or at least some of its movements) hasn't become a jazz standard. The melody of the middle ballad section is stunning and the high velocity final movement could make any accomplished improviser sound good ... a recording no jazz fan's home should be without."
- All About Jazz

"... one of the very first extended compositions for the tenor saxophone ... Oscar Pettiford and Max Roach (are) two unmatched instrumentalists in their own right ... so well composed in its improvisation that you cannot tell where the writing starts and the playing ends ... pay close attention to Roach and Pettiford and how they integrate. Because this is not mere accompaniment, this is real partnership in playing ... you will notice Rollins' distinctive tone: rich and full with a slight edge to it."
- NPR

Recorded and released by Sonny Rollins in 1958, his last album for Riverside, Freedom Suite is considered one of his finest, capturing the saxophonist at his peak. Famous for its 20 minute title track, the LP also features acclaimed performances by bassist Oscar Pettiford and drummer Max Roach, who lock into synch with Rollins for some masterful improvisation.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
