Duke Ellington

from Duke Ellington: Music is my Mistress, page 221:

Paul Gonsalves… had a good musical education, has great solo taste, and plays with profound authority. But he is shy, hates microphones, and loves au naturel. We call him "the strolling violins," because he will take his horn and walk over to a group, or do his whole solo to one child in the audience.
