…we play jazz…

“…we play jazz, we can play jazz, we love jazz but we also choose to not make music that we would call jazz…since I was young, I always thought jazz was the next thing, the thing that does not have a label yet. Once it is called something and has been codified, then for me it WAS jazz but is not any more. I’m sure a lot of people would disagree with that, but that is my natural feeling.” –John Hollenbeck
