Yeah man, real, real sad stuff. These guys only too typical in the lifestyle, so we all lose out because they are no longer around to listen to in the clubs etc.BarrySachs said:WARNING: Don't shoot smack like Tubby and Sal!
It's a great read, highly recommended for those who didn't see it before (like me) .NISTICO: It’s like—I talked to Coltrane. He used to dig Arnette Cobb, Illinois Jacquet. Those guys have a firm foundation for what they’re doing. A lot of cats put down bebop, and they say it’s old and it’s dated, but that music’s not easy—it’s a challenge to play. You’ve got to know your instrument, your changes and what you’re doing.
Thank you Mr PB for reviving this thread. I hadn't read the interview. Very, very interesting.I know this is an old thread, but I just found the >interview< mentioned in post #1 by coincidence and wanted to post it here on SOTW (and found out it's already there ).
I love Texas Tenor playing with guys like Arnett Cobb and Illinois Jacquet as my big hero's and was really pleasantly surprised to read this statement (never read that before):
