When critics speak of Sonny Fortune, names like Coltrane, Cannonball, Young, Bechet, Hawkins, and Parker are mentioned. Quite a legacy – but well deserved – for Sonny Fortune embodies all of the finest qualities of those late, great musicians: hard work, dedication to his art, and exceptional music. Lucky for us, Sonny is still here and blowing hard.
“Of all of Trane’s lasting contributions, perhaps the greatest to the future of improvised music was his example of spiritual integrity and physical drive. Sonny blows with both.”
