Wayne Shorter

We want to stimulate this whole process of ‘Will Somebody Please Stand Up and Think for Themselves!’ or ‘Think-Feel’. I call it ‘Think-Feel’. It’s okay to think-feel for yourself... We’ll play anything that comes to us because we know that the dots have always been connected but artificially man has a history of disconnecting the dots.

Miles would say 'when you’re not playing, when the music is going on and someone doesn’t play during a piece or expression that’s going on, that gives shape and purpose and all that to the whole entity of that moment, the essence of that moment.'
