Benny Bailey Quotes
"When I was a kid, I used to try to copy some of Eldridge's solos like `Rockin' Chair' and `After You've Gone.' That one really knocked me out! `Little Jazz' was all fire, fast like magic!"
"Kidd was one of the most fantastic trumpet players I ever heard. One time when Dizzy Gillespie was in town, he was jamming in a hotel room. Tadd Dameron came in and I remember Hubert Kidd came up. He brought his horn and sort of traded choruses with Dizzy. At that time, Dizzy was something else, untouchable, playing impossible things, and Hubert Kidd actually sounded good. They had different styles, but held his own."
