Sonny Fortune Quartet


Sonny is a riveting improvisor who can play inside or out with a logic and passion that never loses the listener, as evidenced on his critically acclaimed CD, In the Spirit of John Coltrane. Multi-reed player Sonny Fortune approaches all of his instruments with the same tenacity and sensitivity that inspires musicians and critics alike to celebrate his expert playing. Throughout his career, Fortune has played with Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, George Benson, and Nat Adderley. His music pays its respects to the history and culture of Jazz, while still finding ways to invent and imagine the music much like the legends of his time.
