Stanley Crouch on Sonny Rollins

Stanley Crouch always has something to say, this time on Sonny Rollins, in the online edition of the New Yorker.

"Well, Sonny Rollins is one of the brightest lights in the history of the music; his talent is up there next to that of Armstrong, Young, and Parker. He is a true natural and a great synthesizer. In improvising, he does the same thing that Ellington did when composing: he reinvents the entire tradition, because he understands all of the differences and all of the connections."
