In jazz, you listen to what the bass player is doing and what the drummer is doing, what the pianist and the guitarist is doing, and then you play something that compliments that, so you are thinking simultaneously and thinking ahead.
There are a lot of wonderful things created in our culture that have been ignored that can speak to them.
When today's generation reads Jack's books or they listen to the music created by some of us, I believe that they see there is a different way of approaching today's life and today's sometimes seeming hopelessness that can provide answers.
I wish to share and pass down some of my generation's traits, and encourage young people to create their own art, music, and literature.
