Dyani, Johnny M.
I could play jazz, but, first of all, I play black music. We have a message. Louis Armstrong had it, Ellington had it, and Gillespie has it. It can be political, sociological, economic, it can be about the good times or the bad ones. It is our way of communicating. You dont have to read big books about a country or a population to know what they want. Listen to the music and you will know what they have to say
