Yount on Norman Landsberg...
is so much I could say; Incredible technique, sensitive interpretive
skills, savvy showmanship. But enough about me. My colleague Norman
Landsberg is an experience to dine with. He is the only person
I know who can order a nine course meal consisting completely
of substitutions. Norman tends to minimize things. I tend to maximize
things. Between us, there’s a nice kind of middlemize. It
has proved to be a good twenty-six year working relationship.
They say that playing with musicians better than yourself improves
you as a musician. Landsberg’s improvement has been remarkable.
But seriously, I’m serious.”
