Life is a lot like jazz... it's best when you improvise.
True music must repeat the thought and inspirations of the people and the time.
All great composers of the past spent most of their time studying. Feeling alone won't do the job. A man also needs technique.
It is always possible to create something original.
I frequently hear music in the very heart of noise.
