Marc, thanks for the wonderful interview with Sonny. Sonny and Coltrane are like the Aristotle and Plato, respectively, of our jazz world. Sonny mentioned in passing what I love so much about his and John's work, " what I do is so singular." That's it precisely. When I put a Sonny Rollins record on, classic or otherwise, once the sound of his horn comes in, I always feeel as if I am listening to the essence of jazz. I have tickets for Sonny at the kennedy Center in April and am really looking for ward to it.
