John Coltrane, My favorite things

Coltrane’s cover van een song uit The Sound of Music

“The “jazz” musician (you can have this term along with others that have been foisted on us) does not have to worry about a lack of positive or affirmative philosophy. It’s built in us. The phrasing, the sound of the music attests this fact. We are naturally endowed with it. You can believe all of us would have perished long ago if it had not been so. As to community, the whole face of the globe is our community. You see, it is really easy for us to create. We are born with this feeling that just comes out no matter what conditions exist.”  >> Coltrane in een brief aan Don DeMichael, in 1962 (meer op Dangerous Minds)
