to think about recording it,
because I didn’t want people to
think that we were stepping on
the toes of that version. I wanted to pay homage to it, and I
think we did a decent job.
On “Paper Moon,” your solo
starts off with some bending—
which isn’t often heard in a
straight-ahead jazz context.
Why do traditional jazz players
typically avoid bending notes?
If you remember, Charlie
Christian used to bend notes—
and he was the swingin’-est
cat there was, man! So I’m
not afraid. I think people are
used to hearing that in modern
music. You know, B.B. King
and all the other cats do it.
Rock players do it. I’m not
afraid to let jazz have a shot at
it again, too, since we started it.
