Here's one 'Whittaker' liked:-
"Jazz also reminds you that you can work things out with other people. It's hard, but it can be done. When a group of people try to invent something together, there's bound to be a lot of conflict. Jazz urges you to accept the decisions of others. Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow-but you can't give up, no matter what. It is the art of negotiating change with style. The aim of every performance is to make something out of whatever happens-to make something together and be together."
