Al Foster: Love, Peace and Jazz!
AAJ: A lot of younger jazz fans are under the impression that jazz stopped from around the time Coltrane died until the ascension of Wynton Marsalis.
AF: Wynton definitely opened jazz up when he hit the scene. I'm a Miles and Freddie Hubbard freak but [Wynton] definitely did a lot and he still does a lot for jazz with the young kids. We need people like that. I'm from another generation. He's a good musician and most of the young guys are really good musicians, but those great Blue Note records from the '50s and '60s, how can you top that stuff?
AAJ: Umm... you can't.
AF: Thank you, brother! Thank you!
