Remembering Sonny Sharrock

Sonny Sharrock

Source: Reverb.

When Sonny Sharrock’s grandmother told him he should go to church, he told her she should go listen to John Coltrane. That’s Sonny Sharrock in a nutshell. Nothing was sacred. There was no right way to do things besides his own. Sonny was a blues player who didn’t care that the blues was a formula. Sonny was a jazz player that plugged his Les Paul into a Marshall full stack and pumped the gain.
