"Everyone has to find their own voice as an instrumentalist, in jazz more than other kinds of music. You want to sound as much like yourself as you can, and still retain your musical values. My decision to concentrate on the flugelhorn was not as strange to me as it was to other's just a certain sound that I'm looking for."
