SONNY ROLLINS: Raincheck

Jazz You Too

Roadshows vol. 2 includes material from 2010, the year of Sonny Rollins’ 80th birthday, don’t expect him to blow like in Saxophone Colossus or The Bridge.  However, Sonny Rollins is a living legend, one of my heroes, I am not worried about judging this album, comparing it with the previous records or even with his cutting edge albums. The context is perfect for me: it is a document of the life and work of one of the most important jazzmen – and that is priceless!
