Toshiko Akiyoshi - mid 20th Century

from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 251:

After your classical training, how did you learn to improvise? By listening, as a matter of fact, to a seventy-eight [rpm] of Teddy Wilson's "Sweet Lorraine." The first time I was exposed to it I was very impressed. I copied a lot of records and then analyzed them.
