Jazz Music quotes by Artie Shaw
#1. 'Swing' is an adjective or a verb, not a noun. All jazz musicians should swing. There is no such thing as a 'swing band' in music. #Quote by Artie Shaw
Jazz Music quotes by Stan Getz
#2. When I got this saxophone, it became a religion. There wasn't TV, there wasn't much money, and there was just a real dedication ... I never thought of it as an art. It was just work that I loved. Not just work, but work that I loved. I loved it so much, I would play it if nobody listened to it. Any jazz musician, if there's nobody around to listen, would play just for the sheer joy of improvising music. #Quote by Stan Getz

#8. Nothing else will ever capture the democratic process in sound as perfectly as Jazz. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Jazz Music quotes by Nat Wolff

Jazz Music quotes by Darryl Pinckney
#10. Europe was a very contentious subject in literature and yet jazz musicians still depended on Europe. Now it's not such a big deal. #Quote by Darryl Pinckney
Jazz Music quotes by Molly Ringwald
#11. I grew up in a home filled with music and had an early appreciation of jazz since my dad was a jazz musician. Beginning at around age three I started singing with his band and jazz music has continued to be one of my three passions along with acting and writing. I like to say jazz music is my musical equivalent of comfort food. It's always where I go back to when I want to feel grounded, #Quote by Molly Ringwald
Jazz Music quotes by Yann Martel
#12. English was jazz music, German was classical music, French was ecclesiastical music, and Spanish was the music from the streets. #Quote by Yann Martel

Jazz Music quotes by David Sanborn
#16. Jazz music should be inclusive. Smooth jazz to me rules out a certain kind of drama and a certain tension that I think all music needs. Especially jazz music, since improvising is one of the cornerstones of what jazz is. And when you smooth it out, you take all the drama out of it. #Quote by David Sanborn
Jazz Music quotes by Thelonious Monk
#17. Jazz is freedom. You think about that. #Quote by Thelonious Monk

Jazz Music quotes by Yann Martel
#21. In his entirely personal experience of them, English was jazz music, German was classical music, French was ecclesiastical music, and Spanish was from the streets. Which is to stay, stab his heart and it would bleed French, slice his brain open and its convolutions would be lined with English and German, and touch his hands and they would feel Spanish. #Quote by Yann Martel
Jazz Music quotes by Jesse Stone
#22. Kansas City, I would say, did more for jazz music, black music, than any other influence at all. Almost all their joints that they had there, they used black bands. Most musicians who amounted to anything, they would flock to Kansas City because that's the place where jobs were plentiful. #Quote by Jesse Stone
Jazz Music quotes by Donald Miller
#23. I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn't resolve. But I was outside the Bagdad Theater in Portland one night when I saw a man playing the saxophone. I stood there for fifteen minutes, and he never opened his eyes.
After that I liked jazz music.
Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they are showing you the way.
I used to not like God because God didn't resolve. But that was before any of this happened. #Quote by Donald Miller

Jazz Music quotes by George Benson
#43. We don't live in a jazz world, unfortunately. I think if I had lived in a jazz world, I would have done OK. I'm not sure I would have done great. I'm a lover of jazz music, so I would have been happy, don't get me wrong. I go to jazz concerts like the biggest jazz fan in world. The drag is that I don't play jazz for a living. #Quote by George Benson
Jazz Music quotes by Anais Nin
#44. Jazz is the music of the body. The breath comes through brass. It is the body's breath, and the strings' wails and moans are echoes of the body's music. It is the body's vibrations which ripple from the fingers. And the mystery of the withheld theme, known to jazz musicians alone, is like the mystery of our secret life. We give to others only peripheral improvisations. #Quote by Anais Nin
Jazz Music quotes by Maynard Ferguson
#45. Change is always happening. That's one of the wonderful things about jazz music. #Quote by Maynard Ferguson
Jazz Music quotes by Hermann Hesse
#46. Well, there's another set forward, you see. Up to now you couldn't stand all this dance and jazz music. It was too superficial and frivolous for you. Now you have seen that there's no need to take it seriously and that it can all the same be very agreeable and delightful. And by the way, the whole orchestra would be nothing without Pablo. He conducts it and puts fire into it. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Jazz Music quotes by Brenda Sutton Rose
#47. These babies ain't just guitars; these babies are living, breathing instruments. #Quote by Brenda Sutton Rose
Jazz Music quotes by Gerald Early

Jazz Music quotes by Louis Armstrong

Jazz Music quotes by Pharoah Sanders
#58. I'm not a jazz artist. Don't get me wrong now, it's all music to me.

I don't have anything to do with that word. #Quote by Pharoah Sanders

Jazz Music quotes by Miroslav Vitous
#66. So the whole basis for jazz music is based on the fact that the bass player could not play his instrument. #Quote by Miroslav Vitous
Jazz Music quotes by Pete La Roca
#67. What I love about Sonny's playing is that he is so inventive within the mainstream Jazz vernacular. Because he knows so many ways to deal with musical material, he is never repetitive and hasn't had to invent a new language. Also, he never asked me to do anything but swing! #Quote by Pete La Roca
Jazz Music quotes by Tony Bennett
#68. I have always loved jazz music and as a teen growing up in New York City and then later on as an adult have great memories of the jazz clubs that were all located on 52nd Street. I still catch as many jazz shows as I can when I am in New York. And when I perform, I have my jazz quartet by my side. Jazz musicians keep things spontaneous and very "live," which is the way I like to perform. #Quote by Tony Bennett
Jazz Music quotes by Louis Armstrong
#69. Never play anything the same way twice. #Quote by Louis Armstrong
Jazz Music quotes by John Hughes
#70. I usually listen to surf music, not much instrumental music, and when I was younger I listened to jazz. #Quote by John Hughes
Jazz Music quotes by Don Ellis
#71. It is my belief that there is a tendency among the so-called 'modern' or 'hip' jazz musicians to consider styles other that their own, 'corny', and it is my contention that in actuality it is these musicians who are producing that which in future years perceptive critics will deem 'corny'. #Quote by Don Ellis
Jazz Music quotes by Richard J. Alley
#72. Back then he'd hammered out rags as rough as the planks that made up that schoolhouse stage. Over the years he's taken a saw and rasp to those tunes and smoothed them at the edges, sanded them slowly over time with finer and finer grit paper, and applied a polish to them. The songs are comfortable now. People can take their shoes off to dance without fear of a spike in the foot; they can lie back on that smooth and waxed wood to take a nap in the afternoon or make love all night long. Oliver sees himself as a carpenter, a craftsman putting notes and melodies together, fitting them when they will, stepping back to rest and reconsider when they won't. #Quote by Richard J. Alley
Jazz Music quotes by Ian Fleming
#73. They had a table near the rail round the huge floor. Bond was spellbound. He found many of the girls very beautiful. The music hammered its way into his pulse until he almost forgot what he was there for. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Jazz Music quotes by Douglas Booth
#74. I actually wanted to be a jazz musician first. My grandparents introduced me to Louis Armstrong. I loved Louis Armstrong so I took up the trumpet and just did that every day and practiced that. #Quote by Douglas Booth
Jazz Music quotes by Charlie Trotter
#75. A jazz musician can improvise based on his knowledge of music. He understands how things go together. For a chef, once you have that basis, that's when cuisine is truly exciting. #Quote by Charlie Trotter
Jazz Music quotes by Dave Hickey
#76. Jazz presumes that it would be nice if the four of us--simpatico dudes that we are--while playing this complicated song together, might somehow be free and autonomous as well. Tragically, this never quite works out. At best, we can only be free one or two at a time--while the other dudes hold onto the wire. Which is not to say that no one has tried to dispense with wires. Many have, and sometimes it works--but it doesn't feel like jazz when it does. The music simply drifts away into the stratosphere of formal dialectic, beyond our social concerns.

Rock-and-roll, on the other hand, presumes that the four of us--as damaged and anti-social as we are--might possibly get it to-fucking-gether, man, and play this simple song. And play it right, okay? Just this once, in tune and on the beat. But we can't. The song's too simple, and we're too complicated and too excited. We try like hell, but the guitars distort, the intonation bends, and the beat just moves, imperceptibly, against our formal expectations, whetehr we want it to or not. Just because we're breathing, man. Thus, in the process of trying to play this very simple song together, we create this hurricane of noise, this infinitely complicated, fractal filigree of delicate distinctions.

And you can thank the wanking eighties, if you wish, and digital sequencers, too, for proving to everyone that technologically "perfect" rock--like "free" jazz--sucks rockets. Because order sucks. I mean, look at the Stone #Quote by Dave Hickey
Jazz Music quotes by Wynton Marsalis
#77. He [Benny Carter] is all that every jazz musician the world over wants to be. He's performed 20,000 nights. How many shoes have been shined? How much mascara put on? Rouge? How many of those impossible bowties have been tied? How many love songs have been sung? How many dances have been danced? How many have passed to the sound of his music? It's been said that a man should not be forced to live up to his art. Benny Carter is one of the rare instances when we wonder whether the great art that a man has created can live up to him. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Jazz Music quotes by Don Bluth
#78. I'm saddened to see that everyone's pitched out the baby with the bath, in that we say that it can't be one or the other, it could be both. I mean, just because we listen to classical music doesn't mean that we can't listen to jazz. #Quote by Don Bluth
Jazz Music quotes by Pete La Roca
#79. Fusion has been my nemesis. #Quote by Pete La Roca
Jazz Music quotes by Abbey Lincoln
#80. I think that's what really a substantial work is, it's forever. It's the truth now and it was the truth then, and it will be the truth tomorrow. #Quote by Abbey Lincoln
Jazz Music quotes by Brenda Sutton Rose
#81. When you scratch these guitars, they bleed. #Quote by Brenda Sutton Rose
Jazz Music quotes by Steve Lacy
#82. Risk is at the heart of jazz. Every note we play is a risk. #Quote by Steve Lacy
Jazz Music quotes by Ahmad Jamal
#83. Many fail to realize this great recording industry was built by so-called jazz artists. And at the other end of the spectrum, a base in European classical music as well. #Quote by Ahmad Jamal
Jazz Music quotes by DJ Jazzy Jeff
#84. And more than anything, I like the improvisation of jazz. That's the same thing with DJ-ing. There's so much improvisation you can do with cuttin' and scratchin' that's reminiscent of jazz music, because it's all about how you feel. You're capturing a vibe and just going with it. #Quote by DJ Jazzy Jeff
Jazz Music quotes by Sonny Sharrock
#85. Sometimes I see players that think, and you can tell they're thinking of the next phrase to play or the next thing to do, the next little cute trick, and that's sad, man, you know. That's not makin' music; that's puttin' together puzzles, you know. Music should flow from you and it should be a force; it should be feeling, all feeling, man. #Quote by Sonny Sharrock
Jazz Music quotes by Roy Haynes
#86. Sarah Vaughan was the Charlie Parker of the vocalists during the 1950s. #Quote by Roy Haynes

#88. Jazz is the music of the body. #Quote by Anais Nin
Jazz Music quotes by David Sanborn

Jazz Music quotes by Nina Simone
#90. Jazz is a white term to define black people. My music is black classical music. #Quote by Nina Simone
Jazz Music quotes by Max Lucado
#91. Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere. #Quote by Max Lucado
Jazz Music quotes by Romare Bearden
#92. But no one, when you stop to think, has ever equated abstract expressionism as a movement with jazz music. It's based on improvisation. The rhythms, the personal involvement, all of this is part of the jazz experience. #Quote by Romare Bearden
Jazz Music quotes by Rick Riordan
#93. It didn't look like a house they'd just moved into. There were LEGO robots on the stairs and two cats sleeping on the sofa in the living room. The coffee table was stacked with magazines, and a little kid's winter coat was spread on the floor. The whole house smelled like fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies. There was jazz music coming from the kitchen. It seemed like a messy, happy kind of home - the kind of place that had been lived in forever. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Jazz Music quotes by Marian McPartland
#94. I started to play Jazz music in my early teens. A boyfriend brought records over, so I listened to everything #Quote by Marian McPartland
Jazz Music quotes by Charles Mingus
#95. In my music, I'm trying to play the truth of what I am. #Quote by Charles Mingus
Jazz Music quotes by Frederick Douglass
#96. I have sometimes thought that the mere hearing of those songs would do more to impress some minds with the horrible character of slavery, than the reading of whole volumes of philosophy on the subject could do.

I did not, when a slave, understand the deep meaning of those rude and apparently incoherent songs. I was myself within the circle; so that I neither saw nor heard as those without might see and hear. They told a tale of woe which was then altogether beyond my feeble comprehension; they were tones loud, long, and deep; they breathed the prayer and complaint of souls boiling over with bitterest anguish. Every tone was a testimony against slavery, and a prayer to God for deliverance from chains. The hearing of those wild notes always depressed my spirit, and filled me with ineffable sadness. I have frequently found myself in tears while hearing them. The mere recurrence to those songs, even now, afflicts me; and while I am writing these lines, an expression of feeling has already found its way down my cheek. To those songs I trace my first glimmering conception of the dehumanizing character of slavery. I can never get rid of that conception. Those songs still follow me, to deepen my hatred of slavery, and quicken my sympathies for my brethren in bonds. If any one wishes to be impressed with the soul-killing effects of slavery, let him go to Colonel Lloyd's plantation, and, on allowance-day, place himself in the deep pine woods, and there let him, in silence, a #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Jazz Music quotes by Lester Bowie
#97. I always tell my students when you're going to be a jazz musician the first thing you've got to do is be a professional musician, and that means you have to feed yourself with the instrument. #Quote by Lester Bowie
Jazz Music quotes by Steve Lacy
#98. Jazz is like wine. When it is new, it is only for the experts, but when it gets older, everybody wants it. #Quote by Steve Lacy
Jazz Music quotes by Sun Ra
#99. I am a musician, but I'm another type of musician. #Quote by Sun Ra
Jazz Music quotes by Bela Fleck
#100. I think the Flecktones are a mixture of acoustic and electronic music with a lot of roots in folk and bluegrass as well as funk and jazz. #Quote by Bela Fleck
Jazz Music quotes by John Abercrombie
#101. As Eric Dolphy said 'Once you play the music, it's in the air. It's gone'. And that's true. But when you record it, it comes back to haunt you sometimes. #Quote by John Abercrombie
Jazz Music quotes by Max Roach
#102. 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. #Quote by Max Roach
Jazz Music quotes by Art Blakey
#103. It takes an intelligent ear to listen to Jazz. #Quote by Art Blakey
Jazz Music quotes by Cassandra Wilson
#104. Miles Davis was doing something inherently African, something that has to do with all forms of American music, not just jazz. #Quote by Cassandra Wilson
Jazz Music quotes by John Lewis
#105. The reward for playing jazz is playing jazz. #Quote by John Lewis

Jazz Music quotes by Duke Ellington
#108. A goal is a dream with a finish line. #Quote by Duke Ellington
Jazz Music quotes by Wynton Marsalis
#109. Today you go into make a modern recording with all this technology. The bass plays first, then the drums come in later, then they track the trumpet and the singer comes in and they ship the tape somewhere. Well, none of the musicians have played together. You can't play jazz music that way. In order for you to play jazz, you've got to listen to them. The music forces you at all times to address what other people are thinking and for you to interact with them with empathy and to deal with the process of working things out. And that's how our music really could teach what the meaning of American democracy is. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Jazz Music quotes by Curtis Fuller
#110. I can play, and I know it; I'm not looking for any pats on the back. I don't have to be endorsed by anybody. I make enough to live and eat, and I'm happy with my music-and that's all I need. #Quote by Curtis Fuller
Jazz Music quotes by Alan Vega
#111. Lately I've been listening to some classical music again, some jazz. #Quote by Alan Vega
Jazz Music quotes by Trevor St. John
#112. 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. #Quote by Trevor St. John
Jazz Music quotes by Miles Davis
#113. I never thought that the music called "jazz" was ever meant to reach just a small group of people, or become a museum thing locked under glass like all the other dead things that were once considered artistic. #Quote by Miles Davis
Jazz Music quotes by Francoise Sagan
#114. Jazz music is an intensified feeling of nonchalance. #Quote by Francoise Sagan
Jazz Music quotes by Marc Ribot
#115. Jazz is a music of great achievements but speed and chops serve a different function in jazz. #Quote by Marc Ribot
Jazz Music quotes by Ahmet Ertegun

Jazz Music quotes by Keith Jarrett
#117. Jazz is one of the least learnable art forms. #Quote by Keith Jarrett

#120. The singer who really opened the door for me was Sarah Vaughan. But I listen to so much music, especially when I was growing up. My parents loved jazz music, so on Saturday [laughing] it would be the "Longine's Symphonettes," and on Sunday it was Mahalia Jackson. #Quote by Dianne Reeves
Jazz Music quotes by Thelonious Monk
#121. Where's jazz going? I don't know. Maybe it's going to hell. You can't make anything go anywhere. It just happens. #Quote by Thelonious Monk

#123. My life is music, and in some vague, mysterious and subconscious way, I have always been driven by a taut inner spring which has propelled me to almost compulsively reach for perfection in music, often - in fact, mostly - at the expense of everything else in my life. #Quote by Stan Getz
Jazz Music quotes by Jan Hammer
#124. Growing up, I was very much interested in jazz music. #Quote by Jan Hammer
Jazz Music quotes by John Coltrane

Jazz Music quotes by Matt Haig
#126. This was jazz music. It was full of the complexity and contradictions that I would soon learn made humans human. #Quote by Matt Haig

Jazz Music quotes by Mike Stern
#132. Sometimes there are no gigs, but the main thing is the music. You can't take that away. The only person who can take that away from you is you. #Quote by Mike Stern

without it, it's flat. #Quote by Carmen McRae
Jazz Music quotes by Christian Scott
#138. New Orleans is a place where people are deliberately undereducated so that they can be a labour class - the economy there is tourism, and one of the only outlets that black males have traditionally been allowed is to play jazz music, y'know? #Quote by Christian Scott
Jazz Music quotes by Pepper Adams

Jazz Music quotes by Gabor Szabo
#145. When I was studying at Berklee, I got the feeling I couldn't play the [guitar] at all, because I could not use my own things as they didn't fit any set pattern. When I joined [Chico Hamilton], he helped me immensely to develop my own style. He never forced me in any set way. At all times, he encouraged me to be myself on the instrument. #Quote by Gabor Szabo
Jazz Music quotes by Wynton Marsalis
#146. When I came to New York, to Brooklyn, I met Alvin Ailey and Stanley Crouch and August Wilson. They were always putting things in a philosophical context. All the great jazz musicians did, too. There was always a sub-context to what they were saying about music even though they would be very down home and earthy. So I started to develop, in addition to my power and ability to simply hear, a way to place myself in a time. #Quote by Wynton Marsalis
Jazz Music quotes by Bobby Vinton
#147. I played Big Band jazz music. I wasn't into rock and roll. I was just there because it was a living. I surprised everyone. I'm still surprising people. #Quote by Bobby Vinton

Jazz Music quotes by Miles Davis
#149. In Europe, they like everything you do. The mistakes and everything. That's a little bit too much. #Quote by Miles Davis
Jazz Music quotes by Gabor Szabo
#150. People behind the Iron curtain have such an incredible image of America and jazz. I expected to find a Gerry Mulligan or Miles Davis on every corner ... I almost expected a Shorty Rogers to deliver the milk, a Bud Shank to be the mailman. #Quote by Gabor Szabo
Jazz Music quotes by Rachel Joyce
#151. Jazz was about the spaces between notes. It was about what happened when you listened to the thing inside you. The gaps and the cracks. Because that was where life really happened, when you were brave enough to free-fall. #Quote by Rachel Joyce
Jazz Music quotes by Evan Parker
#152. Actually John, Paul Rutherford, and Trevor Watts, and several other rather well known English jazz musicians had got their training by joining the Air Force, which was a pretty standard way for people to get some kind of musical education in those days. #Quote by Evan Parker
Jazz Music quotes by Louis Armstrong
#153. If you have to ask what jazz is, you'll never know. #Quote by Louis Armstrong
Jazz Music quotes by Miles Teller
#154. I've played drums since I was 15. My sisters and I all played instruments. I kind of started with piano and then I actually played saxophone with a jazz band in middle school. So, any knowledge I had of jazz music was from playing alto-sax back then. #Quote by Miles Teller
Jazz Music quotes by Lady Gaga
#155. Amy [Winehouse] changed pop music forever, I remember knowing there was hope, and feeling not alone because of her. She lived jazz, she lived the blues. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Jazz Music quotes by Kurt Rosenwinkel
#156. Scott Feiner is a soulful magnet for the fusion of Brazilian and jazz music ... #Quote by Kurt Rosenwinkel
Jazz Music quotes by John Tesh
#157. Big band music, to me, it really has three key elements. First is the lyrics are really sweet, and they're just really family-friendly. The second thing is the music is jazz music, so the music is complicated enough to hold your attention for 5 or 6 million plays. That makes the songs interesting. The last part is the fact that it's danceable. #Quote by John Tesh
Jazz Music quotes by Matthew Shipp
#158. What makes bebop legitimate is the fact that when it was done, it was illegitimate. #Quote by Matthew Shipp

Jazz Music quotes by Charles Mingus
#161. Jazz is the language of the emotions. #Quote by Charles Mingus
Jazz Music quotes by Matthew Shipp
#162. Thelonious Sphere Monk: there's not a more perfect name to fit his compositions than that name. #Quote by Matthew Shipp
Jazz Music quotes by Jelly Roll Morton
#163. Jazz music is to be played sweet, soft, plenty rhythm. #Quote by Jelly Roll Morton
Jazz Music quotes by Duke Ellington

Jazz Music quotes by Louis Armstrong

Jazz Music quotes by Eric San
#166. If you met my dad, I think a lot of things would be put to rest. Because my pops is a pretty silly guy. But, Coldcut, they're based in the U.K. I'm a big fan of jazz music, so American music has had a big influence on what I listen to. #Quote by Eric San
Jazz Music quotes by Terry Teachout
#167. I became a professional musician and played all kinds of music. I played bluegrass, I played classical music, and for many years, I played jazz. #Quote by Terry Teachout

Jazz Music quotes by Sonny Rollins
#169. I'm not supposed to be playing, the music is supposed to be playing me. I'm just supposed to be standing there with the horn, moving my fingers. The music is supposed to be coming through me; that's when it's really happening. #Quote by Sonny Rollins
Jazz Music quotes by Horace Silver
#170. I may be prejudiced, but I believe that jazz music has the strongest healing potential, and it's not just because I play it and love it so much. I feel that it's the improvisation in jazz that makes it so strong as a healing tool, what each individual gives to a tune from their heart and their soul when they take a solo. It's all spontaneous, and it's all love, and from the heart. #Quote by Horace Silver
Jazz Music quotes by Thelonious Monk
#171. You've got to dig it to dig it, you dig? #Quote by Thelonious Monk
Jazz Music quotes by Rick Derringer

Jazz Music quotes by Edmund Phelps
#175. When I was a teenager, I learned to play the trumpet. Music became my passion. #Quote by Edmund Phelps

Jazz Music quotes by Steven Tyler
#177. Music expresses what cannot be put into words I like to think, and I think the band makes a good go at it. #Quote by Steven Tyler
Jazz Music quotes by Omar Khayyam
#178. How sweet is mortal Sovranty!" - think some: Others - "How blest the Paradise to come!" Ah, take the Cash in hand and waive the Rest; Oh, the brave Music of a distant Drum! #Quote by Omar Khayyam
Jazz Music quotes by Celine Dion
#179. At home, we don't listen to our music-we listen to other people's music. It keeps you attached to the show business world. #Quote by Celine Dion
Jazz Music quotes by Alister MacKenzie
#180. A good golf course is like good music. It does not necessarily appeal the first time one plays it. #Quote by Alister MacKenzie
Jazz Music quotes by Tony Martin
#181. I think I sound like a fella who's always making a plea through his music. Sort of a plea of sincerity. #Quote by Tony Martin
Jazz Music quotes by A. J. McLean
#182. I dont really take anything from home except some U.S. magazines and books and definitely some U.S. music. There are just certain songs that remind me of home. #Quote by A. J. McLean

Jazz Music quotes by Surya Das
#187. Sex, creativity, music, art, family, love, beauty, and creative imagination are all part of the spiritual path in the tantric traditions. So I think that for today that has a lot to say to us about not dividing ourselves from ourselves. #Quote by Surya Das
Jazz Music quotes by Haruki Murakami
#188. It was a cruel world though. More than half of all children died before they could reach maturity, thanks to chronic epidemics and malnutrition. People dropped like flies from polio and tuberculosis and smallpox and measles. There probably weren't many people who lived past forty. Women bore so many children, they became toothless old hags by the time they were in their thirties. People often had to resort to violence to survive. Tiny children were forced to do such heavy labor that their bones became deformed, and little girls were forced to become prostitutes on a daily basis. Little boys too, I suspect. Most people led minimal lives in worlds that had nothing to do with richness of perception or spirit. City streets were full of cripples and beggars and criminals. Only a small fraction of the population could gaze at the moon with deep feeling or enjoy a Shakespeare play or listen to the beautiful music of Dowland. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Jazz Music quotes by Thia Megia
#189. Describing the person I am would best be through music. When I'm up on stage and I'm singing my heart out, I am always reminded of life's best things. #Quote by Thia Megia
Jazz Music quotes by Dean Koontz
#190. It is the nature of a nine-year-old mind to believe that each extreme experience signifies a lasting change in the quality of life henceforth. A bad day raises the expectation of a long chain of grim days through dismal decades, and a day of joy inspires an almost giddy certainty that the years thereafter will be marked by endless blessings. In fact, time teaches us that the musical score of life oscillates between that of Psycho and that of The Sound of Music, with by far the greatest number of our days lived to the strains of an innocuous and modestly budgeted picture, sometimes a romance sometimes a like comedy sometimes a little art film of puzzling purpose and elusive meeting. Yet I've known adults who live forever in that odd conviction of nine-year-olds. Because I am an optimist and always have been, the expectation of continued joy comes more easily to me than pessimism, which was especially true during that period of my childhood. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Jazz Music quotes by Ed O'Brien
#191. Music, at the end of the day, is communicating something - emotion, a feeling, a rite of passage, where you are in life. #Quote by Ed O'Brien
Jazz Music quotes by Emme Rollins
#192. Our eyes met and locked as the song came to a halt, followed by a screaming conclusion from the crowd, girls around us pressing me into the stage, forcing all the air out of my lungs, but I'd forgotten about doing anything so basic as breathing. #Quote by Emme Rollins
Jazz Music quotes by Terry Riley
#193. Essentially my contribution was to introduce repetition into Western music as the main ingredient without any melody over it, without anything just repeated patterns, musical patterns. #Quote by Terry Riley
Jazz Music quotes by Linda Ronstadt
#194. I feel sorry for a culture that depends too much on delegating its musical expression to professionals. It is fine to have heroes, but we should do our own singing first, even if it is never heard beyond the shower curtain. #Quote by Linda Ronstadt
Jazz Music quotes by Liza Richardson
#195. The number one success in music supervision is when you can satisfy everybody on every level, creatively and in terms of the budget. That's when I'm most stoked, when we can balance the left-brained stuff and the right-brained stuff. #Quote by Liza Richardson
Jazz Music quotes by Zeena Parkins
#196. That's one of the main things I do, work with choreographers. I've been doing it a long time, and it's a real important part of my life as a soundmaker, making music for dance. #Quote by Zeena Parkins
Jazz Music quotes by Michael Winterbottom
#197. I'm a fan of music from all over the world. #Quote by Michael Winterbottom
Jazz Music quotes by Raneem Kayyali
#198. Yet I questioned not why destiny does play a cruel melody at times for I knew that each note had a purpose within the symphony of life. #Quote by Raneem Kayyali
Jazz Music quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#199. He would buy me a pair of headphones if I would promise to use them when he was home. Those headphones forever changed the way I listened to music. #Quote by Daniel J. Levitin
Jazz Music quotes by Ramon Gomez De La Serna
#200. A piano store looks like a funeral parlor for music. #Quote by Ramon Gomez De La Serna
Jazz Music quotes by Edith Bouvier Beale
#201. I don't think there's any point in meeting anybody who doesn't like music. #Quote by Edith Bouvier Beale
Jazz Music quotes by St. Lucia
#202. I feel like kids that grew up in New York City or in L.A. were exposed to all these subcultures and subgenres, whereas I was only exposed to the poppiest of pop music so I never had this negative connotation towards pop music. That's not South African music having an effect on me, but just how international music was filtered through South Africa affected me. It gave me a not-negative connotation towards pop music growing up. #Quote by St. Lucia
Jazz Music quotes by Laia Jufresa
#203. But most of all, she respects Linda for having renounced the product mentality. For having said, 'Enough is enough.' Or at least that's how Linda explained it:

'One day I just said enough is enough to the product mentality, you know? It's not that I'm giving up playing, I just don't need to package it. I devote myself to the music now, not the orchestra. I'm all about the process now. #Quote by Laia Jufresa
Jazz Music quotes by Jamie Farrell
#204. They hadn't been good months. About as ugly as a wet warthog and as messed up as a bumblebee in a snowstorm. #Quote by Jamie Farrell
Jazz Music quotes by Evan Parker
#205. The argument we always used to use was that keeping records in the catalog was good for people that were coming new to the music, but I think that was talking over a ten year or fifteen year time span. #Quote by Evan Parker
Jazz Music quotes by Cam Gigandet
#206. I can't hear music. I don't understand it. It's so above and beyond me. #Quote by Cam Gigandet
Jazz Music quotes by Michio Kaku
#207. When you listen to the beautiful sounds of stereo music, remember that you are listening to the rhythms of trillions of electrons obeying this and other bizarre laws of quantum mechanics.

But if quantum mechanics were incorrect, then all of electronics including television sets, computers, radios, stereo, and so on, would cease to function. (In fact, if quantum theory were incorrect, the atoms in our bodies would collapse, and we would instantly disintegrate. According to Maxwell's equations, the electrons spinning in an atom should lose their energy within a microsecond and plunge into the nucleus. This sudden collapse is prevented by quantum theory. Thus the fact that we exist is living proof of the correctness of quantum mechanics.)

This also means that there is a finite, calculable probability that "impossible" events will occur. For example, I can calculate the probability that I will unexpectedly disappear and tunnel through the earth and reappear in Hawaii. (The time we would have to wait for such an event to occur, it should be pointed out, is longer than the lifetime of the universe. So we cannot use quantum mechanics to tunnel to vacation spots around the world.) #Quote by Michio Kaku
Jazz Music quotes by Sarah Hughes
#208. I think what every skater dreams of is not only skating the best program they can possibly skate, but, y'know, having the crowd roar at the end, and it was just so loud I couldn't even hear my music. #Quote by Sarah Hughes
Jazz Music quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#209. And then wonder took him, and a great joy; and he cast his sword up in the sunlight and sang as he caught it. And all eyes followed his gaze, and behold! upon the foremost ship a great standard broke, and the wind displayed it as she turned towards the Harlond. There flowered a White Tree, and that was for Gondor; but Seven Stars were about it, and a high crown above it, the signs of Elendil that no lord had borne for years beyond count. And the stars flamed in the sunlight, for they were wrought of gems by Arwen daughter of Elrond; and the crown was bright in the morning, for it was wrought of mithril and gold.

Thus came Aragorn son of Arathorn, Elessar, Isildur's heir, out of the Paths of the Dead, borne upon a wind from the Sea to the kingdom of Gondor; and the mirth of the Rohirrim was a torrent of laughter and a flashing of swords, and the joy and wonder of the City was a music of trumpets and a ringing of bells. But the hosts of Mordor were seized with bewilderment, and a great wizardry it seemed to them that their own ships should be filled with their foes; and a black dread fell on them, knowing that the tides of fate had turned against them and their doom was at hand. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Jazz Music quotes by Jesse Jackson
#210. Music of all arts should be expansive and inclusive. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Jazz Music quotes by Emmanuel Jal
#211. In times of war, starvation, hunger and injustice, such tragedy can only be put aside if you allow yourself to be uplifted through music, film and dance. #Quote by Emmanuel Jal
Jazz Music quotes by Jac Holzman
#212. The Doors embodied - incarnated - a major upheaval in popular culture. Their music was of the times and it shaped the times. #Quote by Jac Holzman
Jazz Music quotes by Meredith Willson
#213. Regarding the current Broadway revival of The Music Man, Jay Nordlinger wrote: There will always be those who sniff that the show is "feel good"-but, oh, it feels good to feel good. And the main reason The Music Man feels so good is that it is good-a great American musical. #Quote by Meredith Willson
Jazz Music quotes by Danielle Dutton
#214. One night, the Duarte girl, sang poems set to music in a voice so clear I felt my soul rise up inside my ear. In a garden of clematis, with servants dressed like Gypsies placing candles in the trees, we assembled on the grass, between a Belgian wood and {the Duchess of Lorraine}'s glassy pond. In a pale orange gown I read two pieces I'd prepared...When the ladies clapped their approval in the dark, everything, to me, was suddenly bright and near. #Quote by Danielle Dutton
Jazz Music quotes by Albert J. Nock
#215. If the modern spirit, whatever that may be, is disinclined towards taking the Lord's word at its face value (as I hear is the case), we may observe that Isaiah's testimony to the character of the masses has strong collateral support from respectable Gentile authority. Plato lived into the administration of Eubulus, when Athens was at the peak of its jazz-and-paper era, and he speaks of the Athenian masses with all Isaiah's fervency, even comparing them to a herd of ravenous wild beasts. #Quote by Albert J. Nock
Jazz Music quotes by Slash
#216. When I was a kid, a lot of my parents' friends were in the music business. In the late '60s and early '70s - all the way through the '70s, actually - a lot of the bands that were around had kids at a very young age. So they were all working on that concept way early on. And I figured if they can do it, I could do it, too. #Quote by Slash
Jazz Music quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#217. An authentic updating of sacred music can take place only in the lineage of the great tradition of the past, of Gregorian chant and sacred polyphony. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Jazz Music quotes by Robby Benson
#218. Music runs through everything I do - I even think musically; even when I was acting, but, especially, when I am directing. Directing is very musical. #Quote by Robby Benson
Jazz Music quotes by Harvey Pekar
#219. Since about 1980 Kenny Werner has been one of jazz's unsung heroes #Quote by Harvey Pekar
