A Seeker of Wisdom & Truth

(From the August/September Jazztimes). Lou Donaldson, listening to a track by free jazz saxophonist David Binney...
" ...That's got nothing to do with jazz at all. They say he's searching, but I know what he's searching for - a saxophone teacher. That's what he needs."

I did read Lou Donaldson's remarks. I didn't know he was such a vitriolic so and so! As it happens I've heard David Binney in concert on Jazz on 3 and he can play.
