Sonny Rollins is one of the last remaining jazz giants, during his long career he crossed paths with Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Max Roach and Art Blakey, among others. He is an outstanding improviser with total spontaneity and limitless innovation. He is also an excellent composer. Finally for all tenor saxophonists it is in a way the father figure. The concert repertoire will include compositions by Sonny Rollins and also some emblematic standards of the musician.
