“Tenor Madness” is a Bb blues written by the great tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins. It is also the title track of his hit record “Tenor Madness” which was recorded on May 24th, 1956. This tune is also the only recording that Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane ever did together. Check out the original recording and be prepared to be blown away by these two tenor giants’ solo’s. As I always mention for every blues post, please pay special attention to the melody and create your solo with that in mind rather than resort to playing your “blues stuff”.
