East Broadway Run Down

video
various East Broadway photographs; some mine, some from nyc-chinatown and many from the bridge and tunnel club. Some also, misplaced. I'm still trying to remember where that fire house on East Broadway was that Cliff's class visited. about the music clip, which I edited just before it went "free"
East Broadway Run Down is a 1966 album by legendary jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins, his last album before industry pressures led him to take a six year hiatus. The album represents one of his more notable experiments with free jazz, according to The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz illustrating "the furthest extent to which he incorporated noise elements into his playing". It has been critically described as among his 60s "jewels". Music journalist Piero Scaruffi praised the album for the dissonant titular song, "a bold thematic improvisation on the riff of Lionel Hampton's 'Hey Baba Rebop'." Personnel Elvin Jones - drums, Freddie Hubbard - trumpet, Jimmy Garrison - bass
