“I didn’t have a lot of confidence that I was really good enough to really make it” – Sonny Rollins in 1985, as told to Ben Sidran.
It was beautiful because you’re playing against the air. You know the sky it was just a beautiful place to practice a horn. It’s a magical thing you know the keys are there on the piano but what you do with them Tuesday night is going to be different than anything you could have thought about Sunday. So this is the magic of it and it’s a beautiful life.
