Q — "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?"
A —  "Practice, man, practice."

Another Q-and-A, with a jazz D.J. who reportedly died yesterday —

Q — "Did you ever practice a religion?"
A — "I’m mixed heritage. I was bar mitzvah-ed.
My mother’s side of family is Protestant. I was
rejected as a witness at a wedding of one of
Benny Goodman's cousins because I wasn't Jewish
because of my mother. I'm still mad about that.
If you really go back, my mother’s father was
a church organist."

Update of 6:23 PM ET —

Bar mitzvah :  See Two-Bar Hook.
