Jerry Weldon - Sonny Rollins Over the Bridge

Levine Music School, 2801 Upton Street NW , Washington, DC 20008

In 1959, at the peak of his career, Sonny Rollins abruptly took a three year sabbatical to work on his playing. Practicing 15-16 hours a day at the Williamsburg Bridge, he emerged with the album aptly named, "The Bridge," a work in which without much fanfare or ego, Rollins profoundly influenced the entire language of the saxophone.

Featuring: Jerry Weldon, tenor saxophone, Chuck Redd, vibraphone, Paul Bratcher, organ, Josh Walker, guitar, and Andrew Hare, drums
