    I call this the sax vlog because there is lots of sax in it: in the studio song writing, saxophone recording, saxophone dueting... and my Sonny Rollins story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKJeS5RJXCQ. Cheers!

    Hello all, I am a 15 year old sax player looking corn some advice. I've been playing jazz for a little over a year, and I'm comfortable saying I've made a lot progress since then, ALMOST making my all state jazz band this year.

    Sorry if this is not the right part of the forum to post this in but... I can't seem to find Saxophone Colossus in iTunes. When I look it up it seems it is only available in the Canadian Store and various other countries. Does anyone know why this is?

    Hey guys, Here's a recording of me playing St. Thomas with Sonny Rollins :) I transcribed his solo with my teacher, and i decided to give it a run with the actual recording. This is a new mouthpiece, so I'm not quite used to the sound yet. Here it is...

    I own the Sonny Rollins boxed set The Complete Prestige Recordings but I can't find the booklet of liner notes that went with it. Anyone have a copy they could scan and e-mail me or know where I can get a copy? Thanks!

    In lack of a better title... How come there are no Sonny Rollins threads? He is the only saxophonist i really enjoy listening to and who inspires me. I love his tone and improvising, it captures what music really is for me. What do you think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFTqYjA5lVM How...
  10. Brand Name Players ...
    Hello everyone out there... A few months ago I stumbled across an awesome old black and white photo of Sonny Rollins playing a curved soprano into a microphone in a studio setting, cropped in pretty tightly. I was making a google image search for something else, but can't remember what the...

  13. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    I've started a blog to put up various & sundry "jazz stuff," including a bunch of transcriptions. The first two pages of this transcription, in crummy GIF format, have resided on my web site for, oh, more than ten years -- before many of you were born. (If you're less than 10.) (If you are...
  14. Brand Name Players ...
    Tonight I heard Sonny Rollins interviewed on NPR's OnPoint. The interviewer (Tom Ashbrook) is more familiar with political interviews than music interviews, so there were some questions that were off the beaten path. (One was something like, "do you compose from an intellectual perspective?")...
