Description
 
Sonny Rollins is arguably the most influential modern tenor saxophonist that jazz has produced. He began his musical career at the tender age of eleven, & within five short years he was playing with the legendary Thelonius Monk. In the late 1940s (before his 21st birthday), Rollins was in full swing, recording with jazz luminaries such as Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Miles Davis, & Fats Navarro. He was hailed as the best jazz tenor saxophonist alive during the years 1955 to 1959, & developed a method of improvising that involved a sophisticated sense of form. Today, 40 years later, Rollinsís onstage appearances, are eagerly anticipated events, where his compelling sound reaches a whole new generation of listeners.
