Sonny Rollings Unwittingly Breaks The Rules

I've avoided trying to "embed" videos here. The Internet circa-1998 is the golden age, in my opinion. And I'm not really big on birthdays because, heck, we all have one. It's like a law or something.

But this is Sonny Rollins birthday, his 77th. So gruffly cynical views go out the window. Here is the great, unbelievably great Mr. Rollins playing "Weaver of Dreams" back in 1959 at age 29.

Happy Birthday, Sonny! Have a good weekend, everybody.
