Benny Carter

Legendary jazz musician
In all honesty, I think I just played what I felt was right for me. And I think I would have done the same thing, even if I'd been born later, when Charlie Parker was influencing everybody. The truth is, I never gave it much thought. I just played what I had to play.More Benny Carter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
