A Celebration of Sonny Rollins and his Music

Voted by Miles Davis as the greatest tenor ever, Sonny Rollins is known for being an inventive saxophonist and an astonishing soloist. His fluid and harmonically innovated ideas, effortless manner, and easily identifiable sound, have influenced generations of performers.
