John Abercrombie

is an American jazz guitarist whose work often explores the parameters of jazz fusion and post bop.
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]
One thing we're lacking when we get close to the end zone is toughness. We were in a position to get back into the game in the third quarter and we turned the ball over. But I give Hillcrest a lot of credit they're a good team and have a lot of good players.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 [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 [07/11/2011 06:07:42]
To be creative and spontaneous, you have to live with imperfection.More John Abercrombie quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
