Legendary saxophonist Sonny Rollins has blazed one of the most illustrious careers in jazz. In the 1950s, he quickly established a reputation for being among the most brash and creative young tenor saxophonists on the scene, paving the way for an awe-inspiring legacy that President Obama honored with the 2011 Medal of Arts. Now, at 82 years old, Rollins is as raucous as ever, and Hancher is thrilled to celebrate the organization's 40th anniversary with jazz's greatest elder statesmen.
