Duke Ellington: “(…) when I first started to refer to ‘commercial’ music, I meant music that was deliberately bland, extremely simple and elementary, so that the dullest ear could have no problem comprehending what (little) was going on. I could not imagine, I add, that anyone with whom I had ever been associated had been interested in that kind of musical nadir.”
