One of the most lucid interviews that I have ever read. I haven't decided whether I think the questions or the answers are better. Nor for that matter can I decide if I am more impressed by Sonny the horn player or Sonny the man. Thanks. I'm new to your blog and lovin' it.

Chris H

Any word on whether Sonny still intends to release the '57 set?

Bob in Peabody

I'm enjoying, as it's clear you did, your interview with Sonny Rollins. The depth of his thinking and the clarity of his expression comes through strongly, just as it does on record.

One minor correction: Dan Bankhead, also a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers, was the first African-American pitcher in the major leagues. He preceded Newcome, but did not have anywhere near the same success.

I started listening to 'old 'jazz (jazz music before the 70s) recently. I have been used to players like Bob James, Grover Washington jr. etc. one day i stumbled on two cds - saxaphone collosus and a love supreme by rollins and coltrane respectively. I have since acquired many old jazz cds but have not found anything like these two. I have many of these two cds but i wonder if i can ever have anything close to saxaphone collosus from rollins. No matter what Rollins plays it will be always be compared with saxaphone collus because saxaphone collosus is a masterpiece
