A genius of improvisation in constant search of innovation, Sonny Rollins is one of the most influential tenor saxophonists in the history of jazz.

In 1955 he joined Max Roach's quintet, a group that would prove to be one of the precursors of hard bop, before working mainly on his own creations from the following year. In 1956 he released one of his most famous albums, "Saxophone Colossus", and in 1957 he recorded his first pieces as a trio without piano. This particularity was to become known under the name of strolling.

The crème de la crème of Parisian jazz come together in an ephemeral Quartet to pay tribute to this jazz colossus.

Neil Saidi : saxophone
Bastien Brison : piano
Tom Guillois : contrebasse
Malte Arndal : batterie
