Sonny Rollins


Eighty-four-year-old Sonny Rollins is widely regarded as the best saxophonist in the world. He leads a reclusive, media-shy existence in order fully to concentrate on his music and, despite his advanced age, believes he is yet to play his best solo.

In this documentary, jazz lover Olaf van Paassen looks for a way to get his hero in front of the camera and let him talk about the meaning of jazz, improvisation, inspiration, his artistry, and his beloved tenor sax.
