Sonny Rollins

He went to the bridge

Soul searching, one with his horn

Became an icon

*Nicknamed “Saxophone Colossus”,

Sonny Rollins took a 3 three year hiatus

from the music scene to dedicate his life

to his playing and to himself.  The story of

“The Bridge” is the stuff of legends.  One of the few

survivors from the golden age of Jazz, he still

tours and plays today.

Below are a couple of links, one is a 5 minute

documentary about that period of his life,

the other  is a brilliant work of music.
