holy poo there is no way he actually said that. is it real? what a fuging insane self-righteous lunatic motherfuger. I hope he winds up on the browns making $30M/year or whatever it is he thinks he's worth and fades back into nothing without all that talent around.
Milt Jackson was real good, but it's not a xylophone...it's a vibraphone. I met Percy Heath a few times and am close with his nephew. And I think I played a few times with Jimmy Heath a little while ago. Check out Dorothy Ashby - In a Minor Mood if you want something really different. My buddy Roy Haynes on drums, Frank Wess on flute I believe and Ms. Ashby cookin' on the harp.
