“I don’t think I have a completely original style, though I do have an identity. An identity is when someone who knows jazz can say, ‘that’s Lee Morgan playing,’ but my basic style is composed of a strong Fats Navarro/Clifford Brown influence, and Miles and Dizzy, and then again a Bud and Bird thing. I think a definite style comes with living and experience and travelling until you play what you are, you play yourself on the horn.”

  1. So true! Ones thoughts or feelings will be expressed one way or the other. It’s been a while. Hello to you sir.

  2. Oh. my. God. This is why YouTube is becoming my new best friend. This clip reminds me of why I laid my soul on the altar of jazz when I was still in my teens. And why sometimes, you just can’t applaud when the song is over. It would be disrespectful.
