I'm always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning... Every day I find something creative to do with my life.

Don't play what's there, play what's not there.
That was my gift . . . having the ability to put certain guys together that would create a chemistry and then letting them go; letting them play what they knew, and above it.
Do not fear mistakes - there are none.
Bebop was about change, about evolution. It wasn't about standing still and becoming safe. If anybody wants to keep creating they have to be about change.
I'm always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning. . . . Every day I find something creative to do with my life.
