Interview Gems"

On Jimi Hendrix pulling out of playing on Quincy Jones’s 1970 album Gula
Matari: “He was supposed to play on my album and he chickened out. He was
nervous to play with Toots Thielemans, Herbie Hancock, Hubert Laws, Roland
Kirk—those are some scary motherfuckers. Toots was one of the greatest
soloists that ever fucking lived. The cats on my records were the baddest
cats in the world and Hendrix didn’t want to play with them.”

I guess its true, the harmonica is a fantastic instrument that lets out a
death sound.
