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]

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]
If you listen to a lot of music, it gradually seeps into your consciousness or your unconsciousness and comes out in your music.More John Abercrombie quotes [07/11/2011 06:07:59]
