The saxophone colossus delivers a stellar new album of live performances from 2010. Joining songs recorded in Japan with Sonny's working band are four recorded at his 80th-birthday show at the Beacon in NY: I Can't Get Started and Rain Check with Roy Hargrove; In a Sentimental Mood with Jim Hall, and the 20-minute Sonnymoon for Two , his first-ever public performance with Ornette Coleman (it's amazing)!
From the Artist
"I believe that jazz is the music which best expresses the stirrings of the human soul," says Rollins. "I feel tremendously privileged to have succeeded to some extent in a music that includes the likes of Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller--all of these guys who I thought were such tremendous people putting out all of this positive music," Rollins says. "It was all that I could ever dream--to be involved in this."
