Jazz Icons DVDs feature full-length concerts and in-studio performances by the greatest legends of jazz, filmed all over the world from the 1950s through the 1970s. Beautifully transferred from the original masters, each DVD features rare performances that have never been officially released on home video and, in many cases, were never broadcast. Each DVD includes a booklet with liner notes, rare photos and a memorabilia collage. Produced with the full support and cooperation of the artists or their estates.

Rollins is joined by 19-year-old Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen, drum master Alan Dawson and pianist Kenny Drew in the two intimate concerts on this DVD, filmed in the '60s for Danish television at the pinnacle of one of Sonny's most creative periods. The performances feature two incredible versions of his signature tune “St. Thomas,” and reinforce why Sonny Rollins' incomparable style and genius continue to influence new generations of young jazz musicians. 87 minutes.

Songs performed from the 1965 Denmark concert include: There Will Never Be Another You • St. Thomas • Oleo/Sonnymoon for Two • Darn That Dream • Three Little Words.

Songs performed from the 1968 Denmark concert include: On Green Dolphin Street • St. Thomas • Four.
