Kids for Coltrane

Breaking Bread with Jazz Musician Sonny Simmons

Posted on: February 25, 2010

 

I first had the pleasure of meeting Jazz legend Sonny Simmons last year when he so graciously shared his time and talent with my Kids for Coltrane students at the Holliswood School. This month I had the sincere pleasure and great opportunity to interview Sonny over lunch in New York City. There I was sitting with Sonny Simmons and his band mate Michael Marcus, dining at a fine restaurant looking over Columbus Circle. I reflected on the journey that got me to this day… when a musician of Sonny’s caliber and incredible life story would honor me with an interview. I will be writing about our conversation…so check back to my blog again soon.~ Thanks Sonny, you are one of a kind…a real gem.
