«Jazz stands for freedom.
It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom:

Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist—leave that to the classical musicians»
Dave Brubeck


«The true beauty of music
is that it connects people. It carries a message, and we,
the musicians, are the messengers.» 

Roy Ayers


«To play a wrong note is insignificant.
To play without passion is inexcusable.»

Ludwig van Beethoven
