Quote Of The Day
"Many jazz musicians prefer recording their own original songs and rarely want to feature a song by anyone outside of their band—unless the composer is dead and gone.
A few major jazz musicians are bucking this trend, and I applaud them. I just wish more improvisers would follow their lead."
