Sonny Rollins vo Wiener Konzerthaus

Počas pravidelného sviatku jazzu na Slovensku, podujatia Bratislavských jazzákov, sa udiala vo Viedni nemenej dôležitá udalosť. Viedenský Konzerthaus privítal jedného z posledných žijúcich praotcov jazzového saxofónu, Sonnyho Rollinsa. 82 ročný tenor saxofonista je stále činný a jeho vystúpenia sršia neskutočnou energiou.

Sonny Rollins + Sonny Stitt Transcription

»Posted by on aug 13, 2010 in Blog, English | 0 comments

Transcribing (and then of course practicing the solos) is just one of the greatest learning material available. Fortunately, there are many softwares which slow down the track, so everyone is able to get even the smallest nuances in every solo. Even though it is a slow and sometimes painful process, I love how much it helps! Today, I decided to transcribe the legendary recording, called The Eternal Triangle, from Dizzy Gillespie’s album Sonny Side Up (1957), namely the battle of the tenors there – Sonny Rollins and Sonny Stitt. Each of the players plays his solo, and then they trade fours and then eights. Altogether their playing takes almost 9 minutes, it ends at 8:54. That’s going to be a lot of pages…Wish me luck, it is going to be the...

Sonny Rollins – The Stopper

The continuity, with which he composes the lines, is in my opinion pretty remarkable for his age.   I don’t think there were a lot of cats that could play like Sonny „Newk“ Rollins in their early 20’s. Sure, there was Bird, Dizzy, Fats, Brownie, Bud Powell, and some others, maybe one or two for each instruments… But hearing Newk’s records with Bud Powell when he was not even 19 years old, it makes me wonder… what a great...
