#Quote
1When I was studying with Nadia Boulanger, the legendary composer and teacher, in Paris, she used to say "Your music can never be more than you are as a human being". And B.B. King was a great human being.
2[on Jack Nicholson] Jack had a great sense of humor. He still does. He's crazy and a beautiful guy. I always think it's nice when somebody who's paid his dues, like Jack, makes it. But he hasn't really changed much.
3Frank Sinatra took me to a whole new planet. I worked with him until he passed away in '98. He left me his ring. I never take it off. Now, when I go to Sicily, I don't need a passport. I just flash my ring.
