Una celebre antologia dedicata al grande sassofonista copre tutto il periodo in cui la sua casa discografica è stata la Prestige, dal 1949, quando aveva 19 anni, al 1956 quando ne aveva 26 ed era già l'autore di Saxophone Colossus e il numero 1 del sax tenore. All'inizio era un fonetto di 12 LP, 3 per ogni volume. Una suddivisione che non ha molto senso una volta ripati gli LP o i 4 CD usciti in seguito In questa pagina tutti i brani e, indicati in verde , le formazioni con cui ha suonato, come componente o come band-leader, a partire dal suo primo album, Sonny Rollins Quartet, registrato nel 1951 ma pubblicato nel 1952. Le numerose formazioni con le quali ha suonato sono visualizzabili nella pagina Quartet, Quintet & Sextets.
