Text Quotes
The genius of our country is improvisation, and jazz reflects that. It’s our great contribution to the arts  (Ken Burns Quotes) Good history is a question of survival. Without any past, we will deprive ourselves of the defining impression of our being  (Ken Burns Quotes) You can learn as much about the history from reading about the present as you can vice versa, that is learning about the present through history, which is what I do for a living  (Ken Burns Quotes) I don’t use composers. I research music the way I research the photographs or the facts in my scripts  (Ken Burns Quotes) I enjoy total creative control right now. Nobody tells me to make it longer, shorter, better, sexier, more violent, whatever  (Ken Burns Quotes) I grew up certain for a while that I was going to be an anthropologist, until film turned my head  (Ken Burns Quotes) I have made a film about jazz that tries to look through jazz to see what it tells us about who we are as a people. I think that jazz is a spectacularly accurate model of democracy and a kind of look into our redemptive future possibilities  (Ken Burns Quotes) I think my expectations for myself are much more severe and much more direct. You can’t work on a film for six years without being your own toughest critic. So you can’t really be distracted by the expectations based on your previous performance  (Ken Burns Quotes) I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that its extremely predictable, its a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again and theres a certain musical virtuosity involved in it  (Ken Burns Quotes) I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style  (Ken Burns Quotes) In most films music is brought in at the end, after the picture is more or less locked, to amplify the emotions the filmmaker wants you to feel  (Ken Burns Quotes) Like a layer on a pearl, you can’t specifically identify the irritant, the moment of the irritant, but at the end of the day, you know you have a pearl  (Ken Burns Quotes) I can understand why some of these drummers and bass players become cult figures with all of their equipment and the incredible amount of technique they have. But there’s very little that I think satisfies you intellectually or emotionally  (Ken Burns Quotes) The stories from 1975 on are not finished and there is no resolve. I could spend 50 hours on the last 25 years of jazz and still not do it justice  (Ken Burns Quotes) To say that an artist sells out means that an artist is making a conscious choice to compromise his music, to to weaken his music for the sake of commercial gain  (Ken Burns Quotes) We’re having a hard time understanding where jazz is going. What happened to jazz?  (Ken Burns Quotes) When a documentary filmmaker, working in the style that I do, suggests that there has been a shooting ratio of 40 hours to every one hour of finished film, that doesn’t mean that the other 39 are bad  (Ken Burns Quotes) You don’t work on something for six years and be blind to the myriad of other approaches  (Ken Burns Quotes) You need, as a historian, essential triangulation from your subject and the only way you get that triangulation is through time  (Ken Burns Quotes) I’m a filmmaker. I’m an artist. I’ve chosen to work in history the way someone might choose to work in still lifes or landscapes  (Ken Burns Quotes) I record all of my music with authentic instruments in a studio before we start editing, doing many, many versions. The music shapes the film as we edit so it has an organic relationship to the content  (Ken Burns Quotes) It follows the seasons, beginning each year with the fond expectancy of springtime and ending with the hard facts of autumn  (Ken Burns Quotes) We strain to listen to the ghosts and echoes of our inexpressibly wise past, and we have an obligation to maintain these places, to provide these sanctuaries, so that people may be in the presence of forces larger than those of the moment  (Ken Burns Quotes)
