Jazz Icon Sonny Rollins on Giving Up Playing and His Legacy
love him a long time <3

"You know, I listen to the radio a lot and there’s a guy that comes on and says, 'Have a good day today and enjoy.' I hate the word 'enjoy.' Because to me life is not about enjoyment or, in other words, getting for yourself. That’s not why we’re here. The reason of life, to me, is all about giving. Giving is what gives me happiness. Making somebody else happy is the greatest thing you can do."

"'I wanted its sounds to be mostly beautiful,' says Q, who sculpted the sound palette partly for his own therapeutic purposes. 'When I first built it, it was screeching horror, white noise static, sharp-edged oscillations. I slowly worked it into what I wanted it to be: harmonious sounds. But I do still have some ugly ones – lightning would be one of those. And sometimes before sunset it emits some atonal surprising things.'"

really glad I finally got to see them live :-)
