— THE QUOTE —
Phil (Woods) has a number of good Quill stories. I like the one where Quill is coming off the bandstand and someone snidely says to him:
“Gene Quill, all you’re doing is imitating Charlie Parker.”
Quill unhooks his alto and extends it towards the smartass and says:
“Here — you imitate Charlie Parker.”
A P.S. — IF I’M LUCKY
