Sonny Rollins

1930 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Saxophone

Genre: Jazz

Known simply as "The Colossus," saxophonist Sonny Rollins more than lives up to his title with a prolific career stretching over 60 years. The jazz virtuoso rose to the heights of his art form on his own terms, electing at key moments in his career to retreat from the public and reinvent his sound. Many of the master improviser's finest recordings have been live, capturing the mercurial nature of his legendary performances from which both musician and audience have emerged exhausted yet exalted.
