Thieves steal 35 rare saxophones from Italian collector 0 SHARES Share it! Share TweetBy Agence France-PresseThieves have stolen 35 rare saxophones from an well-known Italian collection but missed the crown jewel: one which belonged to jazz great Sonny Rollins. “Thank God, eight of the 35 stolen instruments have already been found by police,” abandoned in a poor Rome neighbourhood, he added. Berni estimated the total value of the instruments stolen over the weekend at 300,000 euros ($340,000), but noted that it was hard to sell them. The stolen saxophones include those made in the 19th century, or others that had belonged to well-known saxophonists such as US big band leader Adrian Rollini.
