Need I point out that Al spoke about mutes but Dave was.

So my strongest memory of Al Grey is that, while he's a great player and I
enjoy and respect him and his playing, he sure couldn't keep his mouth shut
that day in 1979 and kept me from hearing even one word from another great
trombone player who, no doubt, also knows a lot about mutes, Dave

On a more positive side, I did get to hear a jazz legend speak for an hour
once. About mutes. And that is, in itself, pretty cool. I guess.
