Albert Murray: “I think it’s terribly important that jazz is primarily dance music. So you move when you hear it, and it always moves in a direction of elegance – which is the most civilized thing that a human being can do (…) an extension, elaboration, and refinement of effort is elegance, where just doing it gives pleasure of itself. That’s about as far as we can get with life.”
