    Nice interview. Basie made some small group albums that included Greene; this is my favorite.

    I saw MW in Lafayette Louisiana in 2010 - he was playing with his two sons (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    one on drums the other on piano

    I was absolutely blown away by his playing - it was hip and full of drive and fun and magic

    and I got the feeling by half way through that his boys were doing him a favour gigging with him! they were so wonderful on the drums and the piano (I don't know their names - but Whitfield might be one of them)

    I had become a father maybe one year before the gig. shiittt. that's a high bar.

    or a very low one. I think I heard that he was not around when they were growing up (not much anyway).

    thus began a long and as yet unresolved period of confusion about how to be a really good dad.

    but the gig was as good as anything I've seen in ten years.
