A little fun to kick off the New Year...

Without help, how many of the following "Sonny" (or some variant thereof) jazz musicians' given first names can you correctly match? If you are feeling really smart, try answering without looking at the list of first names below.

I adapted this from A Blog Supreme https://www.npr.org/sections/ablogs...25843/eighteen-jazz-musicians-nicknamed-sonny, editing out the last two names because I couldn't find alternative names and correcting (I hope) any errors (my info is based on Wikipedia so...)

I'll post the answers in a separate thread. If you have any comment on the answers, please post them in the other thread. https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showt...nny-Trivia-Quiz-Answers&p=3837066#post3837066

If you like, post the number you got correct below.

Saxophonist Sonny Rollins
Saxophonist Sonny Criss
Saxophonist and flutist Sonny Fortune

Pianist Sonny Clark
