Personal Quote:

[1995 interview in "Down Beat" magazine] I met Trane [John Coltrane] at a jam session at Count Basie's in Harlem in 1958. He said, "Why don't you come over and let's try and practice a little bit together." I almost went crazy. I mean, here is a 20-year-old kid practicing with John Coltrane. He helped me out a lot, and we worked several jobs together.


He played on hundreds of recordings starting in 1958. He influenced a generation of trumpet players, and worked with Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley and Thelonious Monk, among others. See more »
