The original saxophone colossus returns to the London Jazz Festival this year to celebrate his 80th
birthday. The last of the great bebop saxophonists, Sonny is still on incredible form as he proved at last yearís triumphant sold-out Festival show, when he played with the energy of a man half his age.

Here with a new band playing material selected from his astonishing six decades in jazz, this will undoubtedly be another night of Rollinsí soaring saxophone magic.
