"I just saw Christian McBride. He started in my band, Esperanza Spalding started in my band. My nephew Christian was taking her around. They were schoolmates at Berkley and said I should consider her for the band. She sat in and I said Christian, you're right, and I stared hiring. She's a super-talented individual.
Mark Woodfield, lot of young musicians started in my band. Their first experience and then talking about them to everyone that would listen so they can build a name and then hopefully make a living at this.
