Home, in the Key of E

—Tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins, 82, is recipient of the National Medal of Arts and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. His songs "St. Thomas," "Oleo," "Doxy" and "Airegin" have become jazz standards. He is currently working on a new album, "Road Shows, Vol. 3," for release in 2014. He spoke with reporter Marc Myers.
I moved to Woodstock, N.Y., about four months ago for the heat. For the past 40 years I lived on the other side of the Hudson River in Germantown, N.Y., in a small farmhouse built in the late 1880s. My wife, Lucille, and I first moved up there from New York in 1972.
