Sonny Rollins Biography - Grammy Award-Winning 'Strolling' Saxophonist
Just 13-years-old when he received his first saxophone, this budding performer felt the first rumblings of musical passion after watching Frank Sinatra perform at his school. After making his first recordings in 1949 he went on to perform alongside fellow jazz legend Miles Davis before making his breakthrough in 1954 with hit tracks including 'Oleo' and 'Doxy'. Soon after striking out on his own the solo performer recorded what would become his best known composition, 'St. Thomas'. Its brand of scat-like sax, inspired by a Caribbean calypso sung by his mother, the composition blurred genres and paved the way for more unique hits including 'Moritat'.
Known for his technical skill and forward-thinking compositions, the jazz legend is credited with introducing the technique of strolling - the use of drums and bass as accompaniments to saxophone solos (without piano). The saxophonist also gained recognition for his ability to turn even the most tedious material into lively improvisations. The winner of a Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2004, this passionate performer is not an artist you can afford to miss.
