presented by Jazz St. Louis
When Sonny Rollins picks up the tenor saxophone, the world listens. For over half a century, he has played music with the majesty of a Greek god, and today remains one of the few surviving icons from a golden era of jazz that may never be equaled.
Rollins first recorded in 1949 and was recognized as one of the most promising, spontaneous and creative tenor players on the jazz scene, sought after by Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and the Modern Jazz Quartet.
As the most formidable of all jazz improvisers, Rollins remains a living inspiration to musicians and listeners worldwide.
