I have seen Sonny Rollins several times in London, and in the interview here what you were trying to explain as I see it was the pure poetry of the moment you get in Sonny's performances, where the improvisation flies out of his horn and he is no longer in charge, their is energy and flights of humour and drive and he tells you a story, sings and takes the audience on a great musical journey, the last note is the dot at the end of the poem.
