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."

Rahsaanathon coverage on NPR!!!!

The NPR program, "Jazz Night In America" came to this year's "Rahsaanathon" to cover the event, which marked what would've been Rahsaan's 80th birthday.  Listen to the link to hear the music as well as interviews with Kirk's widow, Dorthaan, and musicians Steve Turre and James Carter.  And I'm near the beginning at the one minute mark.
