Quote (and Clip) of the Day: Wynton Marsalis speaks…
“Our current lack of respect for swing can be likened to the current state of our democracy. Balance is required to maintain something as delicate as democracy, a subtle understanding of how your power can be magnified through joining with and sharing the power of another person. When that is no longer understood, it becomes a battle to see who is strongest, who is the loudest, who can get the most attention.
The strong are free to prey on the weak.”
— Wynton Marsalis, with Geoffrey Ward, in Moving to Higher Ground, p. 38-39.
