Harlem rhythm --
He could play a hymn that brought tears to your eyes --

What ya wanna play, Gate? --
All I wanted to do was music --
It's like a priest kneeling at the altar --
You sure don't play like a white boy --
A musical education --
Very much a pianist's pianist --
I love humanity, it's the people I can't stand --
I'll play it the way I play it --
A bit of God on the keyboard --
I'm a whorehouse piano player --
She saved my life --
Ralph's music is Ralph --
It's like a locomotive coming at you --
A gentleness of spirit --
He's very easy to live with --
The true giants remain neglected --
He spoils me for everybody else --
The trademark of a truly great pianist --
'Taint' nobody's bizness --
My marriage comes first and music second --
You have to prove yourself to Ralph --
Words cannot express what Ralph has meant to me --
It was inspiring to play with him --
A better trick is not to be had --
The two pianos did everything but fly --
Ralph is a living legend, of course --
I'll just have to get out of the way of Ralph's left hand --His music jumps up and grabs you --
What a bargain! : three hours of Ralph Sutton for $10 --
He's never anything but right --
I'm happy being a hermit with very loose shoes.
Responsibility: James D. Shacter.
