I look back at my filmography, and I'm pretty jazzed with the stuff I've been part of. They're all movies I'd like to see.
This music that was supposed to only come from tapes like in any restaurant. Something would happened. One bird will start to do a little jazz thing, and another bird will start to answer.
I could do without 'cool' publications calling me 'mom jazz.' But I laughed all the way to the bank, baby.
Jazz is letting everybody do his or her thing with the music.
I progressed through so many different styles of music through my teen years, both as a player and a vocalist, particularly the jazz and pop of the early 20th Century.
Somerset desperately needs more high-end music making on its doorstep, so the chance to share great music spanning genres as diverse as orchestral classics, trip hop and jazz, in the utterly relaxed and cathartic environment of a Somerset field, is for me the fulfilment of a long-term dream.
It pulled me like a magnet, jazz did, because it was a way that I could express myself.
Jazz is about being in the moment.
The cool thing is that jazz is really a wonderful example of the great characteristics of Buddhism and great characteristics of the human spirit. Because in jazz we share, we listen to each other, we respect each other, we are creating in the moment. At our best, we're non-judgmental.
It's not exclusive, but inclusive, which is the whole spirit of jazz.
One thing I like about jazz is that it emphasized doing things differently from what other people were doing.
The spirit of jazz is the spirit of openness.
At a certain point, I became a kind of musician that has tunnel vision about jazz. I only listened to jazz and classical music.
I like the idea of an eclectic approach, incorporating jazz with other forms and other genres of music.
I started off with classical music, and I got into jazz when I was about 14 years old. And I've been playing jazz ever since.
