    2:39

    Sonny Rodgers was a first cousin of Blue Yodeler, Jimmie Rodgers. He toured the country promoting Rodgers music and hosting his Yodelers Paradise Shows at different traditional country music festivals. Friendly and down-home to a fault, Sonny made you feel like he'd known you all his life.

    I met Sonny at the 1999 Avoca Old Time Country Music Festival and performed on his yodeling shows. When my trucking trips took me near his home in South Carolina I'd drop in for a cup of coffee and some good old fashion southern conversation. I was one of the last persons to visit him shortly before he passed away on 1 July 2001.

    This video was filmed by our late friend and music historian, Alex Kennedy at his place in Omaha, Nebraska.

  • Sonny Rodgers & Troy Cook, Jr. * 2000 Avoca Old Time Country Music Festival

    6:49

    Sonny Rodgers is a first cousin of Jimmie Rodgers, the Singing Brakeman. You could also say that Sonny has been one of traditional country music's most consistent ambassadors, travelling the country lecturing and hosting the Sonny Rodgers Yodelers Paradise Show.

    This 3-hour event was a huge favorite at the avoca Iowa Festivals, attracting famous Yodelers from around the world. In this video, Sonny shares the stage with Troy Cook, Jr. at the 2000 Avoca Festival. Cook went on to firmly establish himself on the Indie circuit, with the aide of the late Buster Doss. He is currently living in Nashville, Tennessee pursuing his music.

    When I was trucking, I'd drop in on Sonny at his South Carolina home, and was one of the last persons to do so, before he passed away in July 2001. He had a unique way of making people feel like he'd known you all his life.

    Lyrics:


    The pebbles you've arranged
    In the sand, they're strange
    They speak to me like constellations
    As we lie here
    There's a magic I can hold
    Your smile of honey gold
    And that you never seem to be in short supply of

    [Chorus:]
    Oooh, so baby let's get it on
    Drinking wine and killing time
    Sitting in the summer sun
    You know I've wanted you so long
    Why do you have to
    Drop that bomb on me?

    Lazy days, crazy dolls
    You said we've been friends too long
    Seven days in sunny June
    Were long enough to bloom
    The flowers on the summer dress you wore in spring
    The way we laughed as one
    And then you dropped the bomb
    That I've known you too long
    For us to have a thing

    6:05

    Buzz is another one of those high-power Yodelers that draws a crowd where-ever he performs. Juggling his time between his farm work and music, Buzz has released over 20 albums during his illustrious career that spans several decades.

    Sonny Rodgers Yodelers Paradise Show at the August 2000 Avoca Old Time Country Music Festival. This 3-hour show was one of Avoca's most popular attractions featuring Yodelers from around the world. In spite of week-long temperatures relentlessly hovering between 97 and 100 degrees, the performers gave it their all and the fans endured.

    These excerpted clips represent some of the best performances. There are some audio glitches, of which I wasn't aware until I got home and watched the playbacks. Out of 10 film cassettes I shot, two of them suffered from this defect.

    This would also be Sonny Rodgers last Avoca attendance. His cancer reappeared and the Good Lord called him home in July 2001.

    Walter Theodore Sonny Rollins (born September 7, 1930) is an American jazz tenor saxophonist, widely recognized as one of the most important and influential jazz musicians. In a seven-decade career, he has recorded at least sixty albums as leader and a number of his compositions, including St. Thomas, Oleo, Doxy, Pent-Up House, and Airegin, have become jazz standards.
    After graduating from high school in 1947, Rollins began performing professionally; he made his first recordings in early 1949 as a sideman with the bebop singer Babs Gonzales (J. J. Johnson was the arranger of the group). Within the next few months, he began to make a name for himself, recording with Johnson and appearing under the leadership of pianist Bud Powell, with trumpeter Fats Navarro, on a seminal hard bop session.
    In early 1950, Rollins was arrested for armed robbery and spent ten months in Rikers Island jail before being released on parole; in 1952, he was re-arrested for violating the terms of his parole by using heroin. Between 1951 and 1953, he recorded with Miles Davis, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Charlie Parker, and Thelonious Monk. A breakthrough arrived in 1954 when he recorded his famous compositions Oleo, Airegin, and Doxy with a quintet led by Davis that also featured pianist Horace Silver.
    In 1957, Rollins pioneered the use of bass and drums, without piano, as accompaniment for his saxophone solos, a texture that came to be known as strolling. Two early tenor/bass/drums trio recordings are Way Out West and A Night at the Village Vanguard. Way Out West was so named because it was recorded for California-based Contemporary Records (with Los Angeles drummer Shelly Manne), and because it included country and western songs such as Wagon Wheels and I'm an Old Cowhand. The Village Vanguard album consists of two sets, a matinee with bassist Donald Bailey and drummer Pete LaRoca and an evening set with bassist Wilbur Ware and drummer Elvin Jones. Rollins used the trio format intermittently throughout his career, sometimes taking the unusual step of using his sax as a rhythm section instrument during bass and drum solos. Lew Tabackin cited Rollins's pianoless trio as an inspiration to lead his own. Joe Henderson, David S. Ware, Joe Lovano, Branford Marsalis, and Joshua Redman have also led pianoless sax trios.
    By 1959, Rollins had become frustrated with what he perceived as his own musical limitations and took the first – and most famous – of his musical sabbaticals. While living on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, he ventured to the pedestrian walkway of the Williamsburg Bridge to practice, in order to avoid disturbing a neighboring expectant mother. In the summer of 1961, the journalist Ralph Berton happened to pass by the saxophonist on the bridge one day and published an article in Metronome magazine about the occurrence. During this period, Rollins became a dedicated practitioner of yoga.
    In November 1961, Rollins returned to the jazz scene with a residency at the Jazz Gallery in Greenwich Village; in March, 1962, he appeared on Ralph Gleason's television series Jazz Casual. During the 1960s, he lived in Brooklyn, New York.
    He named his 1962 comeback album The Bridge at the start of a contract with RCA Records. Produced by George Avakian, the disc was recorded with a quartet featuring guitarist Jim Hall, Ben Riley on drums, and bassist Bob Cranshaw. This became one of Rollins's best-selling records; in 2015 it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
    Rollins's contract with RCA lasted through 1964 and saw him remain one of the most adventurous musicians around. Each album he recorded differed radically from the previous one. The 1962 disc What's New? explored Latin rhythms. On the album Our Man in Jazz, recorded live at The Village Gate, he explored avant-garde playing with a quartet that featured Cranshaw on bass, Billy Higgins on drums and Don Cherry on cornet. He also played with a tenor saxophone hero, Coleman Hawkins, on Sonny Meets Hawk!, and he re-examined jazz standards and Great American Songbook melodies on Now's the Time and The Standard Sonny Rollins (which featured pianist Herbie Hancock).
