A Correction

George Ziskind, the correspondent who sent in the report about the Sonny Rollins session, has forwarded to me a correction he received from Ira Gitler. Ira wrote:

…thanks for the kind words but you got the Rollins’ quote about his extended solos wrong. He said–and I am quoting as closely as I can: “The guys in the band are saying, ‘When is he going to finish’? “I guess I’m just a ham.” And I said, “But a very tasty one.”
