Zorn / Ra

I caught a brief portion of an interview with John Zorn, broadcast by the=

BBC. He was going on and on about how he isn't a jazz musician. =

Eventually he said he really liked Sun Ra's music and had even met him once. Sun Ra said to Zorn (sorry if I'm not quoting Zorn perfectly) =

"You're lucky. You're white. You don't have to deal with the jazz tradition." =

Zorn then went on about how he had nothing to offer the jazz tradition . = =2E =2E
