I do appreciate the clarity on this point and it is well taken.

The only one that got it was Dan Polletta.
That's exactly what I was trying to say. Miles and Bill Evans is another
good example of that. The white guy would have to be *much* better than
any
black player who was available at that time and place - or at least
*much*
closer to what that particular leader needed for his band of the moment
-
for Sonny, Bird, or Miles to hire him. Otherwise it wouldn't be worth
the
flack, and he might as well give the gig to a brother. Please tell
Polletta
that I really appreciate his reaction. And my apologies to everyone else
for
not expressing myself clearer.
