Just think... Hal could have gotten some useful publicity just by stating, wherever he went, "McKusick suits Bird."

JazzWax notes arriving to my mailbox every day around 9:30 pm. Although I read English with difficulty, each story is the night-story that all we need... however we believe adults...
Thanks!

Where else but Jazzwax would you find nuggets like this?

In an earlier jazzwax interview Hal says:
“I was playing with my eyes closed and when I was done, I opened them and there was Charlie Parker, sitting right in front of me. He had just come out to California. Bird said, 'Oh man, man, jeeze, what a sound, what a sound!'“
Perhaps he misunderstood, Bird may have actually been saying "what a suit!"
