  • I saw him at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC last week performing with Bob Cranshaw (his pass player) and his band. Amazing for him to still tour internationally at 79 years old! xo

  • If anyone can somehow find a recording of him playing "It Don't Mean A Thing" in Stockholm, in 1959. I would be much obliged. I saw the video on youtube a year ago but it was taken down unfortunately.

  • Great Sonny...
  • Can anyone suggest which album to try next? had Saxophone Colossus for about a year know, and love it to bits.
  • More than once during his long career, this sacred monster tenor saxophone withdrew from the jazz scene, plagued with doubt, it was said. But he always found a place in the foreground, stubbornly asserting its presence and its masterly sense of improvisation.
  • Seeing Newk in the '70's at the Vanguard was a peak for me in my High School days. A couple, talking too loud, ignored the bop the whole set. Sonny, still playing, walked to their table, placed the bell of his tenor on it, and honked his low B flat key at them. Awesome (and effective)!
  • The Bridge is such a beautiful record.
  • Would be a contender for the greatest improviser ever. I've seen him twice in the past year. He's still going strong. any fans of Sonny Rollins vol. 2, w/ the Monk guest appearnace?
  • Saw the old boy at the Barbican this weekend, still blowing strong at 77 and still playing St Thomas.
  • ba du chi chi chi ba du du chi du chi du du chi
