Sonny Rollins.

The name all by itself basically oozes jazz.  The history behind him makes me think of something out of a movie — spending some time in prison for armed robbery, blowing that sax and playing with some giants, becoming one of the giants himself, fighting the demons of heroin and kicking it, blowing that sax even better and becoming an even bigger legend.

He even has the look that oozes jazz.  The hair.  The shades.  The coolness.

Yeah, there oughta be a movie in there.
