Jasbo, every man's jazz man, a legend in his own mind. He doesn't know music theory.
However, brazenly aligns himself with creative musicians who 'play what they hear.He claims to have a good ear.
He listens and hears what they play.

Dizzy Gillispie solos are often musically embellished with direct quotations (short musical passages from another song). As an aside Dizzy plays a coda on his recording of "Groovom' High." Tadd Dameron heard it; utilized as the theme for "If You Could See Me Now."
