Words from Sonny

The Jazz Foundation gave Sonny a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015.

Here’s what he had to say:

“I’m one of the soldiers in the spiritual battle of jazz.”

This comes from a very recent report with David Amram:

“Last week I spoke to Sonny Rollins on the phone.We have known one another since 1955 when I was playing with Mingus and are the same age. I asked him if he was o.k. up in Woodstock, since he can’t play anymore and is housebound.

He said he was fine, even though he is housebound and can’t play the saxophone any more but said he is happier than ever.

He told me that all of us were so fixated on the Virus and our current mis-Administration that we forgot about the Golden Rule and that we should devote ourselves to following it each day as our number one priority!!

“That’s all I think about” he said.”We are all just here for a while and then turn to dust. But the spirit lasts forever”

David comments: How ’bout THAT, compared with the news channels constant morbid fixation on doom, gloom and death and airing of interviews with politicians on both sides hustling us?

How about that?

Financial aid for musicians

Most musicians are self-employed.

If you set yourself up as a business and you’ve filed with the IRS, you may qualify for stimulus help.

It’s not going to be easy, but it is doable and may well be worth the effort.

This guy makes it as clear as it possibly can be – and time is of the essence.

He’s also got lots and lots of other useful videos on the stimulus program.

Note: This video is applicable to ALL self-employed people.

This is a strange topic for Jazz on the Tube but we have A LOT of self-employed musicians as subscribers.

If you want some fresh music, explore our 2,500+ video archive or our nearly 100 podcasts.
