Sun Ra - late 20th Century

from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 86:

I was just listening to my recording of "Take the A Train" [ Live at Montreux, on Inner City], and the piano sounded like someone in a steel mill hitting up against a piece of iron. I wanted to make the piano sound like a train.
