Once we're inside a tune, we can do anything with it.
We really never know what we're gonna play when we get on stage.
Musicians are always gigging and never have a chance to stop for a minute.
Jazz is there and gone. It happens. You have to be present for it. That simple.
I cannot say what I think is right about music. I only know the rightness of it.
If you already have a piece of music ingrained in your body, why would you not play it?
When you're up against an electric band like that, it's like you're on two separate planets.
I don't like recording studios - except my own, which is just a little room above the garage.
I'm not talking ideas, or even presentation. It's like in politics: You have to sell something to become an electric player - like your skin or your heart.
