Rostropovich:

I once conducted an orchestra that was so amateurish, it took them five minutes to get the spit out of their instruments - and that was just the strings!

"The downfall of the Yngwie Malmsteen school of guitar playing, which focuses almost solely on technical proficiency, has occurred because ultimately, no one really gives two ****s about guitar playing in and of itself, except maybe other guitar players."

Billy Corgan

"The negro has produced, in all eras, the most sincere and, therefore, the finest jazz. He is guided by his heart and his feelings whereas the white man tends to overlay these things with his intellectual approach and emphasis on technical accomplishment."

Jack Duarte (1919-2004)

This is also true for flamenco.

"Jazz is, by nature, "personal" music whose prime virtue is sincerity. It is, to coin a phrase, essentially "heart music" - although it is, functionally, "foot music" to the dancer."

Jack Duarte
