"Jazz washes away the dust of everyday life." - Art Blakey

"Once you develop a true understanding of jazz you may be assured that the appetite for it will last as long as you do." - Steve Allen

"[Sincere jazz musicians] aim at excellence and apparently nothing else.  They are hard to buy and if bought they either backslide into honesty or lose the respect of their peers.  And this is the loss that terrifies them.  In any other field of American life, great reward can be used to cover the loss of honesty, but not with jazz players - a slip is known and recognized instantly.  And further, while there may be some jealousies, they do not compare with those in other professions.  Let a filthy kid, unknown, unheard of and unbacked sit in - and if he can do it - he is recognized and accepted instantly.  Do you know of any other field where this is true?" - John Steinbeck
