Sonny Rollins - Saxophone Colossus (MVD Visual / Wienerworld)WIN A SONNY ROLLINS DVD - SAXOPHONE COLOSSUS (WIENERWORLD)
Tenor saxophone master Sonny Rollins has long been hailed as one of the most important artists in jazz history and still today he is viewed as the greatest living jazz improviser.

In 1986, filmmaker Robert Mugge produced SAXOPHONE COLOSSUS, a feature-length portrait of Rollins, named after one of his most celebrated albums. The project began in May of that year when Mugge and a small crew accompanied Sonny and Lucille Rollins to Tokyo, Japan where the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra premiered his Concerto for Tenor Saxophone and Orchestra with Heikki Sarmanto of Finland conducting and Rollins himself soloing throughout.

The next big shoot was in August, when Mugge and a larger crew filmed Rollins and his ensemble performing at sculpted rock quarry Opus 40 in Saugerties, New York. The most surprising part of the latter concert was that, midway through his performance, Rollins leaped from a 6-foot cliff, fell to his back on the ground and, in spite of suffering a broken heel, continued to play his saxophone.

Rounding out the production were interviews with Rollins in Japan, with Heikki Sarmanto in Japan, with Rollins and his wife Lucille in New York City, and with jazz critics Ira Gitler, Gary Giddins, and Francis Davis, also in New York City. The film has been given 4K remastering, and an updated commentary by Mugge is included as a bonus feature.

To enter send an email to sonnyrollinscompo@thebebopshop.com. Closing date for entries is 30th November 2017
