I was playing with the great pianist/vocalist Henry Butler in St. Louis at Just Jazz in the Hotel Majestic. We had been having a great time on the tour…hi-jinks everywhere. The Neville Brothers were staying in the hotel, too, and we got to know them over 4 days. Art invited us to their show on one of our nights off and the hang in the green room was wonderful. Then we hit the streets with some of the band. I remember Willie Green sitting in with a local band almost knocking the back of the room off with his funk, really a powerful drummer. Art and Cyril taught me a shrimp dish that can set you back for days.
