AAJ: It's like the hook in a pop song.

MW: Yeah, in a way, but we're talking about several hooks in the same song that hold it all together. That's been my inspiration. In fact, my tune "El Camino" won a prize from the Thelonious Monk Institute as the winner in the composers' competition in 2000 and Wayne presented me that prize at the Kennedy Center. We spent a lot of time together talking; it was a great time.
