JazzFest History

Sonny Rollins

Instrument: Saxophone
Born: New York, New York

"I like to think that there is a direct link between early jazz and jazz of any time-a vital part, so you can really tell that that’s what it is. I like to think that jazz can be played in a way that you can hear the old as well as the new."

- Sonny Rollins
