A great evening of great jazz. Sonny Rollins comes on stage bent over having a hard time moving his feet. He turns his back to the audience, toward the band, bends over further, puts the mouthpiece of the his sax to his mouth and what comes out is a piercing rich sound with an implicit beat that is so deep you can't sit still.
