I have heard many times that during the late 60s Cannonball was requested by
the Panthers to replace Joe Zawinul in his band with a Black pianist,
supposedely Julian replied, "get me a Black piano player that plays like him
and I will"  Is this a true story or a myth? Anyone have any insight into
this incident?
