Pettiford - Role Model

When I look to history for a role model, it’s Pettiford. Pettiford played the cello with such swing and melody. He was one of the first to lead a band from behind the cello. And he wrote original tunes, some of which are now classics. Pettiford had a special feel for the instrument -- he even named his son Cello! And his twin daughters Celeste and Cellina. He’s always been a hero of mine.
