Dee Bridgewater
This Is New' was a beginning for me, a gentle announcement that this was where I was moving. For me as a musician, I've got to continue challenging myself. I'm sure at some point I'll come back to straight-ahead jazz, but I'm feeling the need to go outside of that realm right now to enlarge my musical vocabulary.

People say about Lubbock that everybody that comes out of there is either a musician or a dope dealer or something like that. And that's true to a certain extent, because Lubbock is just so... like when I was there, it was dry. There was no way to even get a beer.

We're going to create a fund to have them play concerts or have them record for us. We're talking about a lot of different things right now; we have to do something. A lot of the guys I'm talking about include the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Rebirth Brass Band, the Tuxedo Brass Band. There are all these different groups. It's a matter of finding all these musicians scattered across the South.

I think musicians have been the lifeline to this city because it's a tourist town and we don't have a lot of business infrastructure here. And without the musicians it would be very difficult to sustain that. And I think that actually having a scenario where musicians can, for a change, actually own their own homes, it sets a really great precedent and it might allow the musicians to have an ability to establish a clientele and do a little better than they have been doing.

We hardly do the same concert twice in a row. It's such an amazing time to be alive, to be a musician, to be able to participate in the world of music. I feel we've got like a workshop, a studio filled with so many amazing pieces of music. It's a toolbox from which we can build our concerts.

Dave Mustaine
People in the music business, in America, are talking bad about Bushyou know what? Shut the f**k up! You're a musician; you don't know a thing about running a country! If there would have been a better man to run the States right now, we would have picked him, it's a democratic process. There are a couple of guys who run for office, everybody picks him, he goes to the next level. Shut up, he's the f**king president! There's gonna be an election, if you don't like him go for the other guy. Don't sit back there and just piss and moan. I see all these guys like Michael Moore going off and I'm like, 'Dude, you don't have a f***ing idea about what you're talking about.'

It was a great privilege to study with him and I have felt he's the greatest for four reasons: one, he had great technique; two, he had a uniquely beautiful sound; three, his musicianship was remarkable such feeling and passion; and four, he had the ability to communicate all of this to the public, from which he had wonderful support.

Most of the bands that have regrouped or reformed didn't ring true for me. It smacks of cashing in. We wanted to become a band again and make a new record. It's unfair to fans and musicians to just release reissues.

We never really had collaborated [with outside musicians] before Howard left. It's been great, ever since Jeff joined. But I think there was a slight sense if we record as just the four of us, will it be as strong as it was when it was a quartet with Howard, with a guy who played five or six instruments constantly? I think as we played with the role of the saxophone and all of the different instruments that Jeff plays in the band, and all the band has learned to expand into the holes, we know how to play as a quartet now in a way that I think is as powerful as it was originally, and maybe more so in some cases.
Bela Fleck

I wanted to do something that had a purely musical inspiration, and I was inspired by the sound of choirs and the English pastoral music I used to hear when growing up. I was also inspired by the textures and rhythmic vitality of the so-called minimalists, Philip Glass and John Adams, and I'm always intrigued by the sound of the recording studio.

Style, I didn't think we had any! I just plug in and hit the thing really hard. That's my style...or lack of one!
