Jazz He might start singing, Sonny Rollins is Unstoppable

"Well, I might start singing, who knows? Watch out!"

That's an apt warning from the Saxophone Colossus himself Sonny Rollins, who in his 7th Decade as a top-drawer, genre-defining jazz musician confesses that he's still driven to learn more about music and to more properly express all the music that's in his mind. This after donating a massive cache of it (along with other related stuff) to the Schomburg Centre for Research in Black Culture.

Sonny sat with bassist Christian McBride and NPR's Audie Cornish for a brief but engaging reminiscence on his career, his contemporaries and the importance of music.
