Sonny Rollins’ Archive to Soon be Open to Public

Sonny Rollins’s archive has been acquired by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, which stands two blocks from where Mr. Rollins was born in Harlem. The saxophonist, Sonny, is considered jazz’s most respected living improviser. The archive is expected to feature all of Rollins music notes, scores, books, practices and many more things that helped to make him the legend that he is today. The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, which is a apart of the New York Public library system, hopes to have the archive soon be open for the public’s own viewing pleasure. In a recent telephone interview Rollins stated, “I felt that if any young musicians or people were interested in my life and my career, this should be available. I’m an introspective person,” he added. “I always liked to improve myself, and I always liked to learn.” To learn more about the archive, check out this exclusive article from the New York Times.  We will keep you posted on when the archive is set to open.
