PeRforMaNce "You keep playing, keep studying, keep listening, keep learning, and you keep developing. Jazz is not a nine to one A.M. job, once or twice a week. It's a way of life. Some people develop in their twenties. Some people mature in their thirties. It took me to reach my fifties before I matured. It finally happened when a situation took place where I became more secure and much happier with myself. I wasn't satisfied then, but I was satisfied that I was finally heading in the direction that I really should have been heading in all along." Red Rodney
