The Jazz Session #163: Sonny Rollins

Posted under Podcast & Saxophonists

“Jazz is as relevant today as the yearning of people to be free.” That’s how Sonny Rollins describes the state of the music in this interview, recorded in late 2009 during his European tour. He also talks about his early decision to choose music over painting; his choice from his earliest days to record controversial songs such as “The House I Live In;” and his theory about why the world is full of strife.

The music in this interview comes from the Sonny Rollins album Roadshows, Vol. 1. If you’d like to buy this album, you can support The Jazz Session by purchasing it via the link below:
