Once, the two [Don Cherry and Charlie Haden] arrived in a small European town for a concert. They couldn't both fit in the hotel's tiny lift elevator with Haden's bass so Don said he'd take the stairs.
"I was just starting to get settled in my room and I looked out the window and there's Don. In a different set of clothes. On roller skates! In a yellow jump suit - completely different from what he was wearing a minute or two before in the lobby - skating up and down the street outside the window of the hotel waving to everybody. How did he do that?"
