Cannonball Adderley
There's no future without the past and anybody who doesn't really understand where jazz has come from has no right to try to direct where it's going.
Adderley quotes
A young tenor player was complaining to me that Coleman Hawkins made him nervous. Man, I told him Hawkins was supposed to make him nervous! Hawkins has been making other sax players nervous for forty years!
I keep reverting (to Duke Ellington), he to me is the greatest ever and my favorite jazz philosopher, as such.
