one of the real greats. I remember some times back in the early 70s when I had the chance to meet and hang out with Jonah Jones, another fantastic bebopper and one of the nicest gentlemen I have ever met. These seemed to be something very humble about the old jazz men I have met that did not necessarily cross over to the young rockers that became the celebs a generation later. I am probably generalizing a bit, but it seemed to be the case.
