Sonny Rollins

June Jazz Picks from ICON Magazine

Jun 24, 2014

Here's Nick Bewsey from ICON Magazine with a bunch of great jazz CDs to tell you about.

When you consider that critics have been writing about him for over 60 years, it can seem as if there's nothing left to say about Sonny Rollins. But there is – because over the decades, the "Saxophone Colossus" has never stopped growing or adding to his sound.

You generally don't think of Thelonious Monk, George Shearing or Sonny Rollins when it comes to Big Band Jazz. However, this Sunday you'll get to hear some of these Jazz Giants doing their thing with full orchestrations. Sunday, October 7th, 7 to 8 pm with host Bob Craig.
