Sonny Rollins is the only remaining jazz legend who played with CharlieParker, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis and John Colrane in the Golden Age ofJazz. A complicated introvert and sometimes tortured man, who recorded hisfirst album aged 19, his journey has been dramatic and often confounded boththe music industry and his devoted fans. At the height of his career hedecided to quit the scene because, "my name had become bigger than I couldplay," opting to disappear to play alone on the Williamsburg Bridge in NewYork.His return some years later resulted in one of the best-selling jazz albumsof all time, aptly named The Bridge. He quit the scene again a few yearslater to play in solitude in the palisades in New Jersey, and again to visitIndia to practise meditation and yoga.Beyond the Notes seeks out this octogenarian who still plays to sold-outconcerts at jazz festivals worldwide, has received several awards forexcellence around the world, culminating in the Kennedy Centre PerformingArts Award he received from President Obama in 2011, and asks where he hasreached in his artistic quest.Featuring his extraordinary 80th birthday concert with other jazz legendslike Ornette Coleman, Jim Hall and Roy Haynes, this is a must-see film forlovers of music, film artistry and creativity.
