Sonny Rollins and Savion Glover Live Performance & Interview
- About Us
He has recorded in a dazzling variety of styles, from the hard bop of his youth to the free jazz, avant-garde, fusion, Latin jazz, funk and R&B of subsequent decades. A formidable composer and bandleader, he is unparalleled in his imagination and expressiveness as a soloist. A 1956 album title still captures his enduring stature in the world of jazz: Saxophone Colossus. As he enters his ninth decade, he is still going strong. Always spontaneous, always unpredictable, with Sonny Rollins every performance is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. In this performance from the 2006 International Achievement Summit, he collaborates with the Tony Award-winning Broadway sensation Savion Glover. Starting in his teens, Glover led a movement to win respect for tap dance as a serious art form, drawing on the heritage of generations of masters who came before him. His elders and his contemporaries acclaim him as the greatest tap dancer of all time.
