Bridge is a significant album in the discography of the legendary jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins. Released in 1962, this album marked Rollins’ return to the jazz scene after a two-year hiatus during which he practiced relentlessly on the Williamsburg Bridge in New York City. This period of introspection and dedicated practice significantly influenced his playing style, and “Bridge” stands as a testament to this transformation.

The album showcases Rollins’ masterful tenor saxophone skills and features a quartet including Jim Hall on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Ben Riley on drums. This line-up contributed to the album’s unique sound, blending elements of hard bop with more avant-garde expressions.

“Bridge” is known for its diverse set of tracks, ranging from the energetically playful “Without a Song” to the introspective and deeply emotional title track, “The Bridge.” The album also features Rollins’ impressive improvisational skills, particularly evident in tracks like “John S.” and “God Bless the Child.”

Critically acclaimed, “Bridge” is often cited as one of Rollins’ best works and a seminal album in the world of jazz. It’s praised for its innovative approach and Rollins’ ability to push the boundaries of jazz saxophone. The album not only marked a new phase in Rollins’ career but also had a lasting impact on the jazz genre, influencing generations of musicians that followed.
