Sonny Rollins’ tribute is just one of many heartfelt dedications to the Scottish saxophonist Bobby Wellins collected by London Jazz News and published earlier today. Their depth of feeling and respect for this modest, witty and characterful player who died last week at the age of 80 is most of what needs to be said. The rest is there in the sound of Wellins’ music.
Many thanks to the hard-working compilers of LJN for assembling this impressive collection of tributes. It is HERE.
