“It feels great. It’s not so much Sonny Rollins. I think it’s a wonderful thing for our country. We’ve had other jazz people receive this award, but never enough, because jazz is so important to America. And a lot of people don’t realize that. People should realize that, it’s very important, especially in these times, the way the world is going now. America needs to show its beauty. People love jazz. They love jazz all over”, said Sonny.
