On the heels of Sonny and Jim, Miles and Bill, here's a question regarding
Cannonball's hiring of Joe Zawinul.  I've heard comments about Julian taking
criticism for hiring a non-black pianist and supposedely Adderley retorting
Joe has the best sound for his band regardless of color. Can anyone fill in
the details of this anecdote? Truth or urban legend?
