Choices


Christian Scott (who I like), quoted here, and seeming to channel Emperor Joseph II:

“I think the trumpeters who play the fewest notes have the most distinctive voices. Maybe that’s why those other guys play so many notes—because they haven’t found their voice yet.”


Too many notes? Too few notes? Who cares! Just play the right notes.

Yeah, that Dizzy Gillespie sure could learn a thing or two from Mr. Scott...

It's an opinion. Get the stick out your butt. You don't have to agree with the guy just as I don't agree with you. I don't think dead people can learn anything from anyone. R.I.P. Mr. Gillespie.

Play nice, now. It's the Internet. We all have a stick in our butt about something.
