Jazz in the Garden

Museum of Modern Art, New York City, New York, U. S. A. - June 17, 1965

After a lamented two-year hiatus Manhattan´s Museum of Modern Art has resumed the "Jazz in the Garden" series of 10 hour long concerts featuring a different group each week. The series is cosponsored by Down Beat.

The al fresco environment of the museum´s statuary garden offers listeners the same informality and relazation of past summers but now without the former crowding and lack of seating space. the garden has been enlarged and there is a new location for the performers.

Shortly after Rollins´ sidemen positioned themselves and their instruments, a light drizzle began and the faint sounds of a tenor sazaphone playing Will You Still Be Mine? could be heard in the distance.

Instead of running for shelter from the rain, the enthralled listeners turned toward the sound and saw Rollins in a green jacket and blue beret emerge from behind a tree in full musical flight. As the sidemen joined the playing, the strolling saxophonist improvised his unique phrases incisive and witty, apparenthly oblivoius to the rain. He bobbed his head and continued to wander as he played. His tripping steps, almost a dance, were synchronized to his improvisations. At one instante he was facing up into the rain and the next moment staring into the black pool that separates the performers from most of the audience.

This unusual opening set the tone for the entire hour and kept everyone´s mind off the dizzle (the only noticetaken of it was by Rollins, who, in midconcert, looked up and remarked, "We´ll have to see if the management can´t do something about this," but the rain fell until the last note).

For this concert Rollins played mostly well-known ballads, interpreted in his style or meditative ideas and driving riffe. He frequently checked back to familiar melodic lines - and back to familiar melodic lines - and back as well to jazz roots; more than once the ghost of Lester Young was momentatily standing beside him.

When he wasn´t strolling the lenght of the playing area, Rollins took a stance midway betwen the two drummers. (Higgins, Roker, Cranshaw, and Flenagan gave sensitive support throughout the concert. Flanagan filled Rollins´ short rest periods with well-conceived solos.)

Among the tunes played were Three Little Words, a medley in which the Kashmirf Love Song seemed to turn into
To A Wild Rose; and the effective closing, There Will Never Be Another You.
