December 17, 2018 "Back in the days of the old Dean St Cafe in Brooklyn NY when Craig Bailey used to host the Monday night big band session, Roy Hargrove walked in one night. He saw me and said hey man, what are you doing here? I replied, " man, I live here. What about you"? He was in town playing with Sonny Rollins at Carnegie. I asked if he was going to play. As humble as he was he said, "I hope they let me play". I laughed and said, "man you're Roy Hargrove, they had better let you play". He tore the house down. Much love to that brother. May he rest in eternal peace. " - Cal Jones (Brooklyn, NY)
