Still performing, saxophone giant Sonny Rollins turns 80 tomorrow. Rollins worked with Bird, Miles, Monk and others all before the age of 20. In 1956 he recorded the first of what many critics began calling landmark recordings. I remember the first time I heard this was on a Franklin Mint history of Jazz red vinyl LP. I didn’t have many flowery words for words it. Just kind of sat threw it snappin my fingers … called it a groove. Blue Seven.
