I’m no big jazz fan man. I like some of the older stuff. But I don’t love it. Also, the fact that Jamie Cullum is the biggest selling Jazz artist ever irks me a little. But real jazz, its OK. What I am a fan of though is this piece of advice given by Thelonious Monk to Steve Lacey. It’s absolutely fascinating to read.

“Whatever you think can’t be done, somebody will come along + do it

“They tried to get me to hate white people, but someone would always come along + spoil it”

Thelonious Monk

Found this last week on Eric Alba‘s blog, which I’ve only just discovered. Nice.
