READ

Wikipedia : This day (September 7, 1930), in New York City, is born Theodore Walter Sonny Rollins an American jazz tenor saxophonist.

Official Site : Miles Davis in his autobiography wrote Sonny was an aggressive, innovative player who always had fresh musical ideas. I loved him back then as a player and he could also write his ass off…

@ allmusic : He will go down in history as not only the single most enduring tenor saxophonist of the bebop and hard bop era

@ last.fm : Rollins started as a pianist, changed to alto saxophone, and finally switched to tenor in 1946. During his high-school years, he played in a band with other future jazz legends Jackie McLean and Kenny Drew.
