Jazz doesn’t go in much for portentous Hollywood-style trailers. But here’s one for you:

On September 13th, Sonny Rollins releases the 2nd album in his “Road Shows” series of live albums. The most eagerly-anticipated track on this must be the encounter with that other saxophone colossus, Ornette Coleman, recorded as part of Sonny’s 80th birthday concert last year.

More information about the album, and the chance to listen to it online, on the National Public Radio website: First Listen: Sonny Rollins Road Shows vol 2.

A must for my shopping list.
