Excerpt:
The two musicians met in Philadelphia in the 1950s. Carney had a group at the time called the Hi-Tones. It included a young saxophone player named John Coltrane, but Carney wanted to add an organist.

"I called the union," Carney says. "They said, 'Well, we have a young lady down here that plays everything -- funerals, cocktail lounges. She coaches classical musicians.' I said, 'Well, I have to meet her.'"
