What do you eat at Nine Roses Cafe?
I order [over the phone] all the time and say, “Can I have all broccoli?” And the lady on the phone goes, “All broccoli… Mr. Jason!” You got me. Instead of the mixed vegetable, I just get all broccoli, and I’m the only one maybe who does that. Tiny trees…
Does broccoli make you feel like a giant?
That’s what I’ve been thinking since I was maybe four or five years old!
Brown rice, I see. You eat healthy?
I try, but you can eat whatever you want if you have a four-hour gig. Jazz musicians who work in the Quarter at night, they’re all like a certain breed. They all seem to carry guns, and they all know where to park, and they drive slow. It’s like, “We play these tunes, we sing these words, and we carry this kind of gun.” But they eat garbage. Garbage food. They don’t look good.
Not the broccoli types?
