Text Quotes
I want them to come away with discovering the music inside them. And not thinking about themselves as jazz musicians, but thinking about themselves as good human beings, striving to be a great person and maybe they’ll become a great musician.  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) What I can say is that for may years jazz musicians had to go to Europe, for instance, to be respected and to be sort of treated not in a discriminatory way. I don’t think there is anything controversial about me saying that. This is just a fact  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) We always feel pretty creative as far as writing songs.

We just sort of improvise, like jazz musicians  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) Orchestras are not used to playing the kind of stuff jazz musicians like to play.

The Modern Jazz Quartet for one  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) I was being ridiculed for going to school... But, you see, I had looked hard at the other musicians and the whole show-business scene... They were doing with jazz musicians what they usually reserved for rock n’ roll cats: making them overnight successes, then overnight antiques  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) I took some lessons as a kid but trained myself by ear. I did it the way jazz musicians used to learn years ago, which is to play records and slow them down to figure out the notes. At first I tried to imitate Red Garland, who was my favorite jazz pianist  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) Jazz music and, more specifically, jazz musicians, are my artistic heroes. I want to be the Thelonious Monk of acting. He had no concern for how well he was received. He played whatever he wanted whenever he wanted. He just wasn’t interested in achieving the good opinion of his audience. That’s the Holy Grail of acting; of any art form  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) If income was directly proportional to technical proficiency and education, classical and jazz musicians would be some of the most affluent people in the world.  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) Jazz musicians are the coolest people on the planet. Can I have some cool?  (Jazz Musicians Quotes) In some ways, jazz is the most precise of art forms and the loosest in the sense that it’s all about improvisation, but the musicianship required is kind of insane.
