Sonny Fortune R.I.P

Radio Free Amsterdam would like to pay tribute to the mighty Sonny Fortune, who passed away this week at the tender age of 79.

Fortune played with all the greats, and soared upon some of my own personal favourite albums, including the electric Miles Davis albums “Agarta” and “Get Up With It”.

May the music live on and future generations live to enjoy the music of Sonny Fortune, multi instrumetalist, Sax legend and composer.

Mr. Fortune was known for his mix of urgency and grace, and his stalwart command — not just of the alto saxophone, his primary instrument, but also of the flute, clarinet, and soprano, tenor and baritone saxophones. He made his biggest impact as a sideman with the likes of Miles Davis, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner and Mongo Santamaria.–NYT
