John Scofield describes Bob Brookmeyer's personality in a perfect way. I had the very same feeling about Bob when I witnessed him as a performer and jazz teacher during a workshop at NEC in 2002. He competely lived up to his own motto: "A jazz man should be saying what he feels. He's one human being talking to others, telling his story - and that means humor and sadness, joy, all the things that humans have."
