Fuzzy pictures of Saxophone Colossus Sonny Rollins playing an amazing 2 hour set
without interval at the Barbican Centre as part of his worldwide 80th Birthday Tour
"from the very first
note it was clear that the force was still with him. Indeed, musical power
was pouring out of his tenor saxophone...
On Saturday, he was clearly enjoying
himself...His sound...is as noble as ever - majestic and booming in the
lower register, with an
authoritative edge...Rollins has always been good at looking good, and his appearance on stage was the essence of octagenarian
cool. He was wearing a loose scarlet shirt, dark glasses and a white Afro style hairstyle somewhat resembling a Russian fur hat.
