~ Person


"I'm all in favor of getting grants for musicians. Or any other good brand of Scotch." (Pepper Adams)

Mr Adams was certainly one of the greatest and most influential baritone saxophonists.
Featuring in Mingus formations, he also led his own hard-bop dates, including a number of sessions with Donald Byrd.
