Jay McShann Quotes.
I had listened to Joe Turner. When they’d book Joe there, I’d play the blues behind him.
They had the music being piped right out on the street. I’d be three or four blocks from there and I couldn’t get there fast enough because I’d hear old Joe holler them words.
My family was a Christian family. But I had to get to Kansas to play the blues.
We didn’t let a night go by that we didn’t play.
We had an old Victrola with the old bulldog they used to have there. The horn would come out.
It was my first time in Kansas City. In about two or three days I had a gig at a place called The Monroe Inn.
