I've referred to him elsewhere as a "post-human, freak-of-nature" saxophonist, one of those guys who is just plain TERRIFYING on the horn, and seems to be able to play Whatever The Hell we wants. And yeah, in every interview I've heard, he sounds like a really nice, humble guy...Donny is such a humble guy. I'm not surprised by his words. "How do you play better than those guys... you don't." Exactly. You just play as well as you can and keep at it if you are so inclined.
