Quandary Resolution 1732
never-never land, eclectic, antecessor, arch
The elderly jazz buff's tastes were far from eclectic, indeed obsessively focused, for among alto saxophonists it was all too obvious that he recognised neither antecessor nor successor to Johnny Hodges, whose liquid tone, effortless technical command and boundless creativity he found so matchless as to demand immediate beatification to a never-never land where Ellington and Strayhorn were writing for him still - and then he gave me an arch look and asked how I rated that young upstart Charlie Parker.
