    i loved reading this interview. Mickey has always been one of my favorite drummers. i'm grateful that i was there listening to him at so many of the gigs he mentioned starting in the '60s: Lee, Milt, Duke, Dizzy, etc.

    A wonderful interview with a great master. I remember Mickey very well; so many excellent recordings. He gave me an autograph at UCSB's Campbell Hall in '79, following a performance with Dizzy's group.
