Woody Herman in New York City - 1946

from Hear Me Talkin' To Ya: The Classic Story of Jazz as Told by the Men Who Made It, page 393:

Then there were the wonderful kicks of working with Stravinsky when he wrote "Ebony Concerto" for us [The First Herd band]. He was the most patient. He'd hum and sing the parts to us. A very great gentleman. It was a rather exceptional experience and a lot of kicks.
