Non c'e tempo da perdere
"I'm interested in many different types of music. My only criterion is that it be good. I don't care who's doing it, what the genre is, anything like that.
I think anything you learn about music is helpful to your overall approach and vocabulary.
I've always tried to encourage students not to complain, but to look and see what they can do to make things better. This is what the Art Ensemble did, and all the groups from the AACM. I'm amazed right now that that this 50th anniversary is going on, and there's so much interest in it.
Of course I'm pleased. You don't really have time to waste out here. These 50 years have gone past really fast".
