Colossal Collection

Apparently Sonny has cleaned out his garage.  He gathered an assortment of magazines, writings, recordings, instruments, and other memorabilia he saved over his career.  The entire collection has been acquired by The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture at the New York Public Library.  This is cool! The collection will be digitized — well probably not the saxophones.

“Now I can get two cars in my garage.”

— Sonny Rollins
