the last book I ever read (Harvey Pekar's The Quitter, excerpt three)

from The Quitter by Harvey Pekar:

Actually, I’ve been thinking about writing something for them about Fats Navarro. A couple of their writers have indicated that he was just a copy of Dizzy, but he was way more original than that. How could he have influenced Clifford Brown so much if he wasn’t original?

Also, I’d like to do something on Thad Jones. There’s nobody out there with a style close to his.
