Personal Quote:

One of the reasons I believe in jazz is that the oneness of man can come through the rhythm of your heart. It's the same anyplace in the world, that heartbeat. It's the first thing you hear when you're born--or before you're born--and it's the last thing you hear. See more »


Was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1716 Vine St. See more »


A great jazz musician with his innovations in unusual musical times for the genre.
