Rich Hinrichsen

"I don't know what you are playing, but it's not what we want to hear."

 

I recall playing a gig in 1986 at a Clemson South Carolina party (see picture above). Eddie Wynn (sax), Dick Underwood (piano) and I (bass) were playing a song called "Jordu," a 1953 jazz standard made famous by Clifford Brown and Max Roach, when a woman walked straight up to the bandstand and said "I don't know what you are playing, but it's not what we want to hear."
