Quote: Roger Ebert

Gosh, just found this in quote in a Roger Ebert review of the great Jazz movie "Round Midnight". The breathing into the music, hearing the saxophone players breath is a theme I have been thinking and writing about ever since I took up the sax. It seemed a unique feature that that other instruments do not process. With a horn your life's breath propels the music forward.

"Musicians who use breath to play their instruments - those who play the various horns - arrive sooner or later at a point where they play and speak in the same voice."
