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.
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
