I saw him perform at the NJ Performing Arts Center, this year. April? It was fantastic. What I will not forget is after the final encore he and his band mates left the stage and the house lights went on. many people had already left but I sat still, for I wanted the night to be as long as it could be.
It was beautiful. I wrote my friends a very long passionate email that night about Sonny that included the following:
"After the second encore, the house lights went up and
a quarter of the audience had made their way out and I
sat in my chair not wanting the night to end. And then
it happened. Magic. Sonny quietly walked back out on
stage and walked to its edge and began speaking to us.
His band members could be seen just off in the wings,
stepping just a bit around the curtains, still holding
their instruments, to watch Sonny play. He let loose
decades of music and a lifetime of soul searching and
performed what I feel was his final solo, in what will
be one of his final shows on one of his final tours.
Sonny, on stage alone, playing his sax, speaking to us
But it was NOT his final solo in NOT his last tour. I will be there at Carnegie Hall to share yet another moment with Mr Rollins. I cannot wait!
