    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“That's a pretty tall order, ... I don't want to sound too grandiose or that I can represent jazz [in its entirety]. But as one of few remaining people from that period [the heyday of bebop during the '40s and '50s], I want to represent myself and the kind of musicians from that period, so that people who are new to the music can say, 'These people were good; they aren't just a bunch of old moldy figs.'”

It puts me mentally in a place that is always transcendent and above real life. I love playing just for myself. It's a great experience.”

They are attacked in different ways . . . but they are a minority in a majority culture, so they are unfortunately discriminated against by the larger portion of the majority community.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I remember hearing that song around the house, and on the radio and everything, ... Wow, I haven't heard that record in so many years.
