I looked up to Elliott for many years and had been a fan of not only his playing but also his arranging, producing, writing and business sense. I got in touch with him after I finished the first book. He gave a really kind review and we began to communicate more often. As I started in on the second, I knew the only guy I wanted was him. In the array of work he had done and continues to do, he was the perfect voice for the opener.
I didn’t prepare a list of possibilities. I didn’t want anyone else.
I only asked him to write the foreword and I was thrilled when he came back and said yes.
