They (Jazz players) are not familiar with how to deal with the pressure, and so that's how they've always done it ? overpower people, and get shots off. But you have to make them. Because when we take standing shots that are not really in a rhythm or anything, we have a difficult time (defending) the other end of the floor.

Keith Richards
It is a jazz band in its own little way, ... Charlie is a jazz drummer, and [bassist] Darryl Jones worked with Miles [Davis] for five years. That gives us more freedom to move.

Friday, I was rehearsing with Joshua Nelson at the Synagogue at 10 a.m. At Noon, I was here, talking on a panel about what folk music is. The moment I left here, I went to a recoding session, and played tuba on an Australian blues singers record. And the moment I finished that, I drove to a gig to play jazz and blues standards at a cafŽ. And then I got home around 10 o'clock, collapsed, and then came back here again.

I was a weird kid. I should've been gay because I listened to a lot of Broadway musicals. I don't know why I'm not gay. I listen to a lot of jazz and world music, like African or Cuban music. Something that has vitality to it. A lot of the American stuff just feeds on itself.

Carl Sandburg
DRUM on your drums, batter on your banjoes, sob on the long cool winding saxophones. Go to it, O jazzmen. Sling your knuckles on the bottoms of the happy tin pans, let your trombones ooze, and go hushahusha-hush with the slippery sand-paper. Moan like an autumn wind high in the lonesome tree-tops, moan soft like you wanted somebody terrible, cry like a racing car slipping away from a motorcycle cop, bang-bang! you jazzmen, bang altogether drums, traps, banjoes, horns, tin cans—make two people fight on the top of a stairway and scratch each other’s eyes in a clinch tumbling down the stairs. Can the rough stuff … now a Mississippi steamboat pushes up the night river with a hoo-hoo-hoo-oo … and the green lanterns calling to the high soft stars … a red moon rides on the humps of the low river hills … go to it, O jazzmen.

Carl Sandburg
IT’S a jazz affair, drum crashes and cornet razzes The trombone pony neighs and the tuba jackass snorts. The banjo tickles and titters too awful. The chippies talk about the funnies in the papers. The cartoonists weep in their beer. Ship riveters talk with their feet To the feet of floozies under the tables. A quartet of white hopes mourn with interspersed snickers: “I got the blues. I got the blues. I got the blues.” And … as we said earlier: The cartoonists weep in their beer.
