"Back in the 60's I got to back up and work with a lot of the Motown groups, even record with a few. One night I was on stage with Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. They had their own rhythm section, and I was one of the added horns. I was impressed and amazed that the drummer and bass player were backing up their big numbers playing in a more modern jazz-like style, like Art Blakey or Elvin Jones, and still keeping the groove. It was actually swinging. I have always loved many of the melodies that are part of the Motown Family. It has shaped my style as a player. The beat, the groove, and the basic harmonies, still inspire me after all these years as a jazz musician. They also take us back to a simpler time in life, and when melody was king."
