The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.
Jazz is the big brother of the blues. If a guy's playing blues like we play, he's in high school. When he starts playing jazz it's like going on to college, to a school of higher learning.
We all have idols. Play like anyone you care about but try to be yourself while you're doing so.

I've put up with more humiliation than I care to remember.
