PowerPoint Presentation: My favouri t e Quo t es & Drivers of Innova t ion Courtesy Matt Mullenweg “WordPress” except some Consulting is like jazz………….. It can be learned, but it can’t be taught Adapted from Paul Desmond , born Paul Emil Breitenfeld, Jazz alto saxophonist and composer – “Take Five” PowerPoint Presentation:  "What does not destroy me, makes me stronger." – Friedrich Nietzsche, 1844-1900 "Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance." Samuel Johnson 1709-84. " When it’s darkest, men see the stars." – Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882 " When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water." – Benjamin Franklin, 1706-1790 "A certain amount of opposition is a great help to a man. Kites rise against, not with the wind." – John Neal, 1793-1876 "Success is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm." – Anon "He knows not his own strength that hath not met adversity." – Ben Jonson, c. 1573-1637 "Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes playing a poor hand well." – Jack London, 1878-1916 Theodore Roosevelt -- about the value of “daring greatly”. It's an excerpt of a speech he gave at Paris’s Sorbonne in April, 1910 : “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

PowerPoint Presentation: My favourite JAZZ quotes Courtesy Matt Mullenweg “WordPress” except some Consulting is like jazz………….. It can be learned, but it can’t be taught Adapted from Paul Desmond , born Paul Emil Breitenfeld, Jazz alto saxophonist and composer – “Take Five” PowerPoint Presentation: Eddie Condon Albert Edwin Condon , better known as Eddie Condon , Was a jazz banjoist, guitarist, and bandleader. A leading figure in the so-called “Chicago school” of early Dixieland, he also played piano and sang on occasion. Quotes Krupa’s drums went through us like a triple bourbon. ∞ Ted Lewis could make the clarinet talk. What it said was ‘put me back in the case!’ ∞ Finally Beiderbecke took out a silver cornet. He put it to his lips and blew a phrase. The sound came out like a girl saying ‘yes.’ ∞ Paul Desmond sounds like a female alcoholic. ∞ PowerPoint Presentation: Eddie Condon Billie Holiday , Was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Nicknamed “Lady Day” by her friend and musical partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo Quotes You can be up to your boobies in white satin, with gardenias in your hair and no sugar cane for miles, but you can still be working on a plantation. ∞ I can’t stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession. If you can, then it ain’t music, it’s close order drill, or exercise or yodeling or something, not music I never hurt nobody but myself, and that ain’t nobody business but my own. ∞ When Lester plays, he almost seems to be singing; one can almost hear the words. ∞ Don’t threaten me with love, baby. Let’s just go walking in the rain. ∞ I’ve been told that nobody sings the word ‘hunger’ like I do. ∞ PowerPoint Presentation: Charles Parker, Jr. , famously called Bird or Yardbird Was an American jazz saxophonist and composer Quotes Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art. ∞ I kept thinking there’s bound to be something else?. I could hear it sometimes, but I couldn’t play it. ∞ Master your instrument, Master the music, and then forget all that *!xy!@ and just play. ∞ Don’t play the saxophone. Let it play you. ` ∞ If you don’t live it, it won’t come out your horn. ∞ You’ve got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail. ∞ PowerPoint Presentation: John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie Was an American jazz trumpet player, bandleader, singer, and composer dubbed “the sound of surprise” Quotes Men have died for this music. You can’t get more serious than that. ∞ They’re not particular about whether you’re playing a flatted fifth or a ruptured 129th as long as they can dance to it. ∞ It’s taken me all my life to learn what not to play. ∞ I don’t care much about music. What I like is sounds. ∞ PowerPoint Presentation: Thelonious Sphere Monk was an American jazz pianist and composer considered “one of the giants of American music”. Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire. Quotes At this time the fashion is to bring something to jazz that I reject. They speak of freedom. But one has no right, under pretext of freeing yourself, to be illogical and incoherent by getting rid of structure and simply piling a lot of notes one on top of the other. There’s no beat anymore. You can’t keep time with your foot . There’s a new idea that consists in destroying everything and find what’s shocking and unexpected; whereas jazz must first of all tell a story that anyone can understand. ∞ I don’t know where jazz is going. Maybe it’s going to hell. You can’t make anything go anywhere. It just happens. ∞ Just because you’re not a drummer doesn’t mean you don’t have to keep time. ∞ A genius is the one most like himself. ∞ I didn’t know there were 2 ten o ’ clocks in a day… ∞ PowerPoint Presentation: Charles Mingus Jr. Was an American jazz musician, composer, bandleader, and civil rights activist . Quotes In my music, I’m trying to play the truth of what I am. The reason it’s difficult is because I’m changing all the time. ∞ Most of the soloists at Birdland had to wait for Parker’s next record in order to find out what to play next. What will they do now? ∞ Good jazz is when the leader jumps on the piano, waves his arms, and yells. Fine jazz is when a tenorman lifts his foot in the air. Great jazz is when he heaves a piercing note for 32 bars and collapses on his hands and knees. A pure genius of jazz is manifested when he and the rest of the orchestra runaround the room while the rhythm section grimaces and dances around their instruments. ∞ Anyone can make the simple complicated. Creativity is making the complicated simple. ∞ If someone has been escaping reality, I don’t expect him to dig my music. ∞ PowerPoint Presentation: Louis Daniel Armstrong , nicknamed Satchmo or Pops Was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana . Quotes I don’t need words – it’s all in the phrasing. ∞ When you’re dead, you’re done. ∞ If they act to hip, you know they can’t play shit! ∞ Man , all music is folk music. You ain’t never heard no horse sing a song, have you? ∞ [Bebop is] Chinese music. ∞ Man , if you have to ask what it is, you’ll never know. ∞ If I don’t practice for a day, I know it. If I don’t practice for two days, the critics know it. And if I don’t practice for three days, the public knows it. ∞ Jazz is played from the heart. You can even live by it. Always love it. ∞ Never play anything the same way twice. ∞ To jazz, or not to jazz, there is no question! ∞ What we play is life . PowerPoint Presentation: Miles Dewey Davis III Was an American trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. Quotes We’re not going to play the blues anymore. Let the white folks play the blues. They got ‘em, so they can keep ‘em . Jazz is the big brother of Revolution. Revolution follows it around. ∞ As long as I’ve been playing, they never say I done anything. They always say that some white guy did it. ∞ I don’t care if a dude is purple with green breath as long as he can swing. ∞ In Europe, they like everything you do. The mistakes and everything. That’s a little bit too much. ∞ When you’re creating your own shit, man, even the sky ain’t the limit. ∞ Nothing is out of the question for me. I’m always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up in the morning and see the light…Then I’m grateful. ∞ Coltrane, you cant play everything at once! ∞ I’ll play it first and tell you what it is afterwards. ∞ Do not fear mistakes. There are none. ∞ A legend is an old man with a cane known for what he used to do. I’m still doing it. ∞. PowerPoint Presentation: Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington Was an American composer, pianist, and big band leader. Quotes By and large, jazz has always been like the kind of a man you wouldn’t want your daughter to associate with. ∞ I’m sure critics have their purpose, and they’re supposed to do what they do, but sometimes they get a little carried away with what they think someone should have done, rather than concerning themselves with what he did. ∞ There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind. ∞ I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues. ∞ Love is indescribable and unconditional. I could tell you a thousand things that it is not, but not one that it is. Either you have it or you haven’t; there’s no proof of it. ∞ Playing ‘bop’ is like playing Scrabble with all the vowels missing. ∞ If it sounds good and feels good, then it IS good! ∞ A goal is a dream with a finish line. ∞ I never had much interest in the piano until I realized that every time I played, a girl would appear on the piano bench to my left and another to my right. ∞ There is nothing to keeping a band together. You simply have to have a gimmick , and the gimmick I use is to pay them money! ∞ PowerPoint Presentation: And….. There you have it…………. James W. Martin
