One thing I like about jazz, kid, is that I don't know what's going to happen next. Do you?More Bix Beiderbecke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The humor of jazz is rich and many-sided. Some of it is obvious enough to make a dog laugh. Some is subtle, wry-mouthed, or back-handed. It is by turns bitter, agonized, and grotesque.

It's recent phase seems to throw the light of the white race's sophistication upon the anguish of the black.More Bix Beiderbecke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
