Sonny Rollins G-Man from the film Saxophone Colossus


...of course the first time I saw this i criticized the heck out of it(hey I was young!!)
...but his tone...the band is grooving...uh,so is he...and the flow of ideas

i try to find other videos ,but either the "experimental" funky personnel..or the lack of groove...or a prevailing concept never live up to this one....

anyone got one??

is it just videos you are looking for? we were lucky with g-man in that it was being filmed and sound recorded for a movie and album. there is a nice video from Warsaw 1980 of Sonny playing Keep hold Of yourself on youtube.
