Sonny Rollins - tenor sax
Tommy Flanagan - Piano
Doug Watkins - Bass
Max Roach - Drums

Recorded for the 1956 Prestige LP 'Saxophone Collosus'

'St Thomas' was the first of Rollins experimentations with Calypso patterns that Rollins said wasn't so much an original as it was an arrangement of a well-known Caribbean melody reflecting his familial roots in the Virgin Islands
