The greatest tenor sax player of the bop era recently turned eighty years old and is still playing all over the globe. Although Sonny Rollins is mostly known for his improvisations, he has contributed to the canon of jazz with several wonderful compositions, such as Oleo, Airegin and, most of all, St. Thomas. But records like A Night at the Village Vanguard, Way Out West and Freedom Suite have also become undisputed classics of jazz music. On the stage Rollins still tends to surprise his audience; a Rollins show is always a musical experience of the highest category. He earns respect for his virtuoso and lyrical playing. And his never-ending passion for innovating is impressive. "Jazz is the best music to show the workings of your soul," says Rollins. And he takes this literally. He keeps on searching with a healthy appetite. This hunger to play makes every concert by this jazz legend incredibly exciting.
