Synopsis

Saxophone Colossus is a lengthy documentary of the life and work of jazz saxophonist Theodore Walter "Sonny" Rollins. Clips of Rollins making music alternate with interviews of the subject's friends, relatives and co-workers. Recounted for benefit of fans and casual viewers alike are Rollins' years with Babs Gonzales, Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Quartet. The film is particularly valuable to jazz buffs in light of the fact that Sonny hadn't made a recording since 1978. A master at conveying the exuberance and artistic significance of African American-based music, director Robert Mugge admirably brings Saxophone Colossus to full and vibrant life. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
