#219 Hot or Cool

Jazz will endure just as long as people hear it through their feet instead of their brains. ~John Philip Sousa

Blues is to jazz what yeast is to bread — without it, it's flat. ~Carmen McRae

Jazz is the big brother of the blues. If a guy's playing blues like we play, he's in high school. When he starts playing jazz it's like going on to college, to a school of higher learning. ~ B. B. King

Hot can be cool and cool can be hot, and each can be both. But hot or cool, man, jazz is jazz. ~Louis Armstrong
