It sounded nice, but one concert at the Newport Jazz Festival was enough for me to realize that having Tony traveling with me and being onstage together night after night would have driven me crazy.

They seem to have a magnet sucking in your energy but nothing comes out, which is what shyness does to people. – Gerry Mulligan about Tony Fruscella
