Dewey Redman Contributed to the Arts.

Years ago I was at the North Sea Jazz festival [first time] and for those
who have been there you know that there is a always a jam session at
Bel-Aire Hotel every night where EVERYBODY stays. I was absolutely
enthralled at all of the legends who were coming through the door in the
lobby.I literally sat by the lobby door waiting to see who would roll
through next.
Anyway, later in the night at the jam session, I was introduced to Dewey
Redman and eventually told me that he was the father of Joshua Redman. He
was already kind of tipsy and after talking for some time he went on to
comment [in fact, marvel] at the amount of money his son was making compared
to him. I Listened.
Then someone told him that I was a struggling singer, so, I guess he wanted
to contribute to the arts. Out of the blue, he tried to give me a $100.
Bill...I said , NO! NO! NO! Maybe he was drunk?
Of course I said, "you don't need to do that." You keep your money. After
all, I don't know if he was complaining or bragging about his son's money. I
said, "Stop it. What are you talking about?" [laughing] He continued to try
and make me take the money, I continued to refuse. We were both drinking and
having fun and I was just happy to be there...also, I was being paid [not
So, before I could react, he pushed the $100. bill down into my bosom and
walked away..so, after all of that effort...Hey, I kept it and Boy, did I
appreciate it! 
So, Dewey Redman Contributed to the Arts.
