"Jazz, for me, is life itself." #jazzquotes #jazzvideo #music #jazz

The only thing I say is to play your own self. Don't be copying someone else. Try to create a style of your own and then stick to it. Any of the big names have their own style. You can always tell a Louis Armstrong or a Teagarden or a Hodges, but when you get down amongst the lesser ones it's hard to tell them apart. I tell all the young guys I meet, "It's good to take influence from someone, but don't play note for note like them. You'll never make it in this racket. Play your own way."
Barney Bigard ⭐ March 3, 1906 ♥ June 27, 1980 (aged 74)

"I don't consider myself a musician who has achieved perfection and can't develop any further. But I compose my pieces with a formula that I created myself.
.
Take a musician like John Coltrane. He is a perfect musician, who can give expression to all the possibilities of his instrument. But he seems to have difficulty expressing original ideas on it. That is why he keeps looking for ideas in exotic places. At least I don't have that problem, because, like I say, I find my inspiration in myself."

Do you think that John Coltrane had more trouble than Monk when expressing original ideas? Why?
