I have a friend who doesn’t like jazz. She thinks it’s boring.
I like jazz. I love the way the group interacts, the music lively and passionate. And on a deeper level, it can make me feel human again. Murray:
Jazz is only possible in a climate of freedom.
one of the reasons totalitarian governments hated jazz was because good jazz is hard to script, do by rote. Those governments wanted things done right down the line. No improvisation allowed. Jazz is great when jazz throws off the rule, and doesn’t do as it’s told.
