Quotes: Jazz

"In pop music, style tends to be determined by what you can't do. That's why limitations are so important, and why pop music presents such a problem to consummate musicians. They don't have a style, because they don't have limitations. And so they end up playing jazz."
Neil Tennant

"Jazz isn't dead, it just smells funny."
Frank Zappa during "Be-Bop Tango" from Roxy And Elsewhere.
