Teddy Wilson (and His Orchestra) Quotes

"My working scene today is just taking whatever bookings come up; I donít turn anything down. Iím for sale; Iíll play with a hundred pieces or do a solo job. Bobby Hackett and I work with a quartet sometimes.
Teddy Wilson

Within reasonable limits, a professional player should keep busy at music, even if itís a commercial job that you donít like. Fortunately, I am able to do a majority of pleasurable jobs, but I have done commercial jingles and stuff for radio and TV. They pay well and, since I have lots of responsibilities, children to support, I need to make money. If itís enough money, Iíll play the North Pole."
