Langsam fange ich an, mich selbst zu verstehen. Es wäre toll gewesen, wenn ich dazu schon mit 20 in der Lage gewesen wäre, statt mit 82.
I'm beginning to understand myself. But it would have been great to be able to understand myself when I was 20 rather than when I was 82.AlterDave Brubeck
Jazz steht für Freiheit. Er ist die Stimme der Freiheit. Geh da raus, improvisiere und versuch dein Glück. Sei nicht perfektionistisch - überlass das den klassischen Musikern.
Jazz stands for freedom. It's supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don't be a perfectionist - leave that to the classical musicians.JazzDave Brubeck
I started growing up in a hurry and taking a lot of the philosophy I'd heard from church as a kid a lot more seriously - especially the Ten Commandments - and wondering how 'Thou shalt not kill' could be so absolutely ignored. It took me until I was in my 40s to write what I was thinking as a young soldier.Dave Brubeck
There's a way of playing safe, there's a way of using tricks and there's the way I like to play which is dangerously where you're going to take a chance on making mistakes in order to create something you haven't created before.Dave Brubeck
