Alfie's Theme

Composed by Sonny Rollins 1966

Written by Sonny Rollins for the 1966 film "Alfie" starring Michael Caine, "Alfie's Theme" (not to be confused with the song "Alfie" written by Burt Bacharach for the same film) really does seem to capture the mood and feeling of a young man living a hedonistic lifestyle.  Watch the film, and you'll see what I mean!

Sonny Rollins: tenor saxophone
J.J. Johnson: trombone
Phil Woods: alto saxophone
Bob Ashton: tenor saxophone
Danny Bank: baritone saxophone
Roger Kellaway: piano
Kenny Burrell: guitar
Walter Booker: bass
Frankie Dunlop: drums
