Black Woman !!

Yet another Jazz great who died relatively young; 53. Sonny started
musically in his teens singing Doo Wop, until he moved on to collaborate
with Pharoah Sanders, and Alexander Solla in the late 60s. He wanted to play
tenor saxophone from his youth after hearing John Coltrane on Davis's
Kind of Blue on the radio at age 19, but his asthma prevented this.
Sharrock said repeatedly, however, that he still considered himself "a
horn player with a really fucked up axe.". I posted this album some
years ago, but the link is dead, and I have recently listened to it again.
So, here we are haha. Anyway, read more about him, if you're
interested. Now, for the album ...
