Mission: The Sonny Rollins Bridge Project seeks to rename NYC’s Williamsburg Bridge commemorating Rollins’ musical sabbatical there from 1959-1961.
In the summer of 1959, saxophonist Sonny Rollins disappeared from the jazz scene. He was 28 years old and at the height of his career. He would not record or perform publicly for almost 3 years, a virtual eternity for a jazz musician. Instead, Rollins took it to the bridge: he would practice, typically alone, up to 16 hours a day on the pedestrian walkway of New York’s Williamsburg Bridge, not far from his home on the Lower East Side. Rollins has said of the experience: “Playing against the sky really does improve your volume and your wind capacity. I could have just stayed up there forever.”
We are selling this poster to raise awareness of the project and will be using a portion of the funds to support the effort.
Sales of the Poster Will Begin Soon
