Chris Potter is likely one of the most recent players who has a lot of Rollins in his playing. Not 100% or anything but, I can definitely hear it. Bob Reynolds also has a bit. Not as much as Potter but... then again, I think they took a lot of the artists they enjoyed and put them together to get their style and sound. The more players you have the more amalgamated the sound of the most modern players will become.

Yeah, Joe and Sonny certainly have a lot in common to my ears, and no little swagger too! But to me Joe has his own rhythmic thing going on, I've always found him much harder to transcribe as such.
Talking about transcribing. I'm pretty used to back and forth CD player and checking times stamps but, I recently picked up an app that I found helps a lot. Twas suggested by Bob Reynolds and it is definitely interesting. It's called the Amazing Slow Downer. It's pretty neat.
