Personal Quote:

[King Curtis] approached his [sax] solos differently than your jazz cats - most of 'em were pretty snooty jazzberries who thought rock & roll was just a waste of time. But King Curtis, he played sax the way a guitar plays, like James Burton would play a lead on a song. It was how he played and how he attacked the notes and his phrasing that was different than the normal. See more »

Trivia:

Doesn't sight-read music, and actually panicked when asked to do a recording session for John Lennon and expected Lennon to pass out horn charts. As it turned out, Lennon merely passed copies of his lyrics (with chords written in) around to the session players; he couldn't sight-read music either. See more »
