This release contains two extremely rare and long-unavailable European concerts by Sonny Rollins. A 1965 Paris performance showcases Rollins in a trio format including a half-hour plus version of Three Little Words, and 23 plus minutes of There Will Never Be Another You.

The second concert was taped in Copenhagen and features an all-star quartet with Kenny Drew, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and Albert "Tootie" Heath.

The recording quality is not always up to modern standards, but the sessions are of high historical importance.
