"The most influential of the musicians [on the local scene in New Haven] were Bobby and Eddie Buster. They were local organists who played and recorded with all of the greats who had passed through town including Sonny Rollins, Gene Ammons, Sonny Stitt and John Coltrane. Th e Busters took me under their tutelage and every Sunday I went to the Jam Session they led and learned a lot of important musical lessons the hard way."
