He really is a most remarkable man. I was privileged to spend half an hour with him once at The Jazz Mart. The shop was quiet on this particular day and when he realised I was from the UK we went to a quiet part of the shop to chat about blues in the UK. I had been looking for a particular Jimmy Dawkins cd who had originally recorded on Delmark. He didn’t have in stock but he would try and locate it so he asked me to ring him at the Delmark studio the next day. This I did and we continued the chat for another 10 minutes.
A really nice man who has set the standard for all to follow.
