Life is a lot like jazz... it's best when you improvise.
Jazz is the only music in which the same note can be played night after night but differently each time.
Jazz is a very democratic musical form. It comes out of a communal experience. We take our respective instruments and collectively create a thing of beauty.
Jazz is about being in the moment.
Music washes away the dust of every day life.
Anybody can play. The note is only 20%. The attitude of the mother****er who plays it is 80%.
