    His bass guitar playing is so indifferent that it is easy to forget what great double bassists he is.
    Apparently, his royalty and retirement checks are huge, though.

    great clips all! The bass playing is terrific, but these are a reminder that Sonny Rollins was literally a giant and Jim Hall was almost from another planet for that time. What a great guitar player. Y'all know he just died recently? Not to make light of it, but he looks like an old man in those clips and it was 1962 - he had over 50 years to go! He looks like an accountant who forgot his pocket protector ... he had to really be able to play to get into Sonny's band, and he sure could play. In a few of those clips you see Sonny digging on Jim's solos.
