Sonny Rollins - The Way You Look Tonight.

A Saturday afternoon way back - maybe early sixties - my first meeting with the late Charlie Carmichael.
I needed a dep for a gig. Charlie, needless to say, was working but it didn't stop him inviting me in for a coffee (or was it a beer or 3?). Inevitably, records were played including this one by Sonny Rollins - still my favourite from those early Rollins' years.
Charlie is long gone but Sonny is hanging on in and this will live forever.
Thanks to Marc Myers Jazz Wax for reminding me of this fabulous disc (did I file it under M or R?...
Lance.
