Rudolph in the mid 60’s worked with organist Jimmy McGriff all over the east coast but then moved to L.A. There are some sideman appearances scattered around but he did work and tour with Ray Charles in the 70’s and early 80’s. I did finally meet him here in Vancouver where he was appearing with Ray at the Cave Supper Club. Rudolph and I had a late meal after his Charles gig one night and we exchanged numbers and laughed about how we had never met considering that we frequented many of the same spots. He told me that he practised meditation (he didn’t drink or ever use drugs of any kind) and also practised his horn 6 to 8 hours a day. As he told me, “you’ve only got so much time here (on earth) and you’ve got to make it count every minute”. That was our only meeting. I must also say that he blew the roof off the Cave during his few solo spots with the Charles’ band.
