Tenor Madness is a landmark in the history of jazz as it includes the only known recording of Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane performing together. Coltrane happened to be working in the same studio in 1956, Rollins invited him to sit in, and the rest is history. Coltrane played on the title track, a 12-minute duet showcasing the prowess of both tenor saxmen. The rest of the album, sans Davis, is some of the best of early Rollins backed up by the Miles Davis rhythm section.
