I interviewed Bob when I worked at Jazz90.1 in Rochester, NY. He was doing a gig and clinic at the Eastman School, and he carved out 30 minutes for me to sit down with him. He couldn't have been nicer. It was one of my earlier interviews, and I think I would probably wince listening to it now, but Bob was the opposite of gruff.

Ed Leimbacher

Marc, thanks much. This is already an instant-classic interview, with one of the great, near-six-decades stalwarts of jazz--but sadly, oddly, a man still more unsung than sung considering all the groups he's played with or led or written for. And he's still putting out prizewinning CDs today. Congrats on the coup, and keep 'em comin'!

Denis Ouellet

Absolutely wonderful reading. I love Bob's playing.
This is so welcome. Please can't wait to hear Part 2.
Truly a master player.

Thank you Marc

Fernando Ortiz de Urbina

Thanks for doing this, Marc. Brookmeyer is an all-time favourite as a soloist (his melodic imagination and guts) and as an arranger. Really looking forward to his comments on Bill Harris and (hopefully) his album "Gloomy Sunday".

V. Ponka

Wonderful interview. I posted a link to it in an article I wrote on my blog 'Beginning With Mingus'.
