"King Pleasure heard me in Cincinnati when I was working at a place called the Cotton Club with Jack Mcduff. He was a bass player then and he switched to piano -later organ. When we got off from work we used to go upstairs and jam, and Pleasure would be around and he heard "Moody's Mood For Love", and he went to New York and somebody heard him singin' it, Weinstock, I believe recorded him.
Then when they heard what the source was, after they asked him to come back and do some more. He said 'I don't have anymore, Eddie Jefferson is the writer of that, a dancer in Pittsburgh'. They sent to Pittsburgh and hot me. If they hadn't of heard him do it, I might not of ever been heard of in this field. So I attribute to King Pleasure one of the reasons why I'm out here today, doin' this.............."
