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.
