Music. Art. Culture. Writing.
“In music, I don’t see too much difference between head arrangements and written arrangements. The jazz musician, though he practically never receives credit for it, is constantly composing during his improvisations, and most of the melodies he creates are never set down on paper, nor on record….If they had those midget tape recorders on the market back in 1942, I could’ve written a song a week without taking off time from what I believe is the essence of jazz composition, playing and improvisations.”
-Dizzy Gillespie, To Be or Not to Bop
