Sonny RollinsAmerican jazz tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins is back at the Barbican for the London Jazz Festival following a legendary performance at the same venue two years ago when "every single person rose in an ovation" (The Telegraph). The musician, now in his eighties, is considered one of the jazz greats and has been creating music since the 1950s and 1960s. He worked with Miles Davis and Bud Powell before he turned 20 and has gone on to establish himself as one of the finest tenor saxophone players of all time.

 

About Barbican Centre

Described by the Queen as 'one of the wonders of the modern world' , the Barbican Centre has also been voted 'London's ugliest building'. Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
