Every tradition was once an innovation.
Anybody can write music of a sort.
But touching the public heart is quite another thing.
John Philip Sousa
Music was my joy, my home, the one place I felt happy and secure.
My guitar is not a thing.
It is an extension of myself.
It is who I am.
Playing is my way of thinking, talking, communicating.
Change is always happening.
That's one of the wonderful things about jazz music.
