Does Your House Have Lions?

"One day in the late sixties, I was on the phone with Rahsaan and mentioned to him that just that day I bought a house.
He responded by asking, "Does your house have lions?"
I said, "What?"
He said, "Lions, you know like in front of a museum or the post office. You know, concrete lions. My house has lions. Get a house with lions."

Friday quote, RRK

"Bright Moments is comin' home late at night or early in the morning from the gig, and if you're real relaxed and it's raining, you can hear the raindrops hit like in clusters.  Chords like little bells in tune with each other...a melting kind of thing.  Bright Moments is also like not bein' afraid when you hear the thunder 'cause you know it's probably Chick Webb and some other drummers playin' up there across the sky."
