Art Mardigan & Dizzy Gillespie
|Elvin Jones On Art Mardigan:
| "I used to go to the club and listen to Wardell Gray and all these cats. Art Mardigan was the drummer, and he was always very friendly and helpful to me. He used to ask me to sit in, but I would never do it. I thought it was presumptuous to sit in with these musicians, because to me, they were the greatest people I knew."
Allen Eager, Art Mardigan, and Curley Russell, Club 18, New York, N.Y., ca. Nov. 1947
