Alto sax player Sonny Simmons got started back in the 60s playing in NYC and on the West Coast. Then in the 70’s and 80’s things were quiet and Sonny made his way to Europe. He reemerged in 2000 with new groups and new music. Now in his 80s Sonny plays regularly throughout Europe. His latest CD came out in 2013 and is titled “Beyond the Planets”. It is a double CD collection of acoustic and electric duets with harpist Delphine Letil and guitarist Thomas Bellier. Sonny will be in studio at KCSM talking about his music and current interests.
