The cover art of Reel Lifewith a tiny image of Sonny Rollins sitting on top of a giant tape reel, is a telling factor in this studio session. Rollins was one of the first beboppers, and one of the last remaining to record with magnetic audio tape in an analog format. This sterling band with Rollins featured two electric and distinctly different guitarists in Bobby Broom and My Little Brown Book - Sonny Rollins - Reel Life Masuolongtime electric bass guitarist Bob CranshawSamen Naar De Berebios - De Bereboot - In De Bere-bios the keen and vibrant drummer Jack North Town - Lycia - Fifth Sun (File). As the career of Rollins moved into fourth gear, his love for hard bop, Caribbean music, and funkier styles continued to appeal to die-hard fans and the urban crowd.

In the middle is Sonny Rollinsat ease and comfortable in not so much driving the band as being the golden centerpiece in this stable display of modern jazz that in many ways set the standard for an upcoming new era.
