John Abercrombie

John Abercrombie

is an American jazz guitarist whose work often explores the parameters of jazz fusion and post bop.
On record dates like that I never felt too nervous because everything was really overdubbed. When we did that album, we were in the studio for probably a week, so you had a lot of opportunity to fix things.More John Abercrombie quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every time I listen back to solos of mine I'll hear something I like and then another phrase that I can't stand. You have to live with what you play. And the recording medium puts that on us. When I play live gigs I don't think so much like that.More John Abercrombie quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Classical musicians do this all the time. They want perfection. So they piece things together. Eight bars of this and six bars of that. Glenn Gould said that with a recording he wanted to make perfect versions of pieces.More John Abercrombie quotes [07/11/2011 06:07:36]

You're just sort of searching for this "thing" and sometimes you get it and sometimes you don't. All music is imperfect, but in jazz since you're improvising, at least the way I play, I'm trying to follow my train of thought in a solo.More John Abercrombie quotes [07/11/2011 06:07:14]
