Modern Masters

Sonny Rollins


A five-minute interview with Sonny Rollins

The brilliant and always-original Sonny Rollins has had a very productive and significant career.

Sometime around 2005-10, he was filmed talking about his beginnings, the impact of seeing a picture of Louis Jordan, his early gigs, Thelonious Monk, his retirement in 1959, and how he sees his role in music.

This interview will hold his fans’ interest.
