I’d learned the scale and learned how to play to tunes in a certain key, the key of G for the saxophone, you know, concert. I'd learned the first eight bars of Lazy River and I knew the complete tune of Honeysuckle Rose. I didn't ever stop to think about any different kind of keys or nothing like that. So I took my horn out to a joint where the guys, a bunch of fellows I'd seen around, were, and the first thing they started playing was Body and Soul. So I go to playing my Honeysuckle Rose and they laughed me off the bandstand, laughed at me so hard I had to leave the club.
