Sonny Rollins

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 7:30p

One of the most important and influential jazz artists ever, Rollins is often called a “Saxophone Colossus,” and as the Village Voice so aptly puts it, he is “the last standing jazz immortal.” His compositions have become jazz standards, and his groundbreaking work on the tenor sax defined the sound of jazz in the 1950s and 60s. At 81, he remains the most exhilarating and inspiring jazz artist performing today. A recent Kennedy Center honoree, his status as a jazz icon cannot be understated.
