American Jazz

Famous quotes containing the words jazz and/or american:

    There’s more bad music in jazz than any other form. Maybe that’s because the audience doesn’t really know what’s happening.
    Pat Metheny (b. 1954)

    The U.S. is becoming an increasingly fatherless society. A generation ago, an American child could reasonably expect to grow up with his or her father. Today an American child can reasonably expect not to. Fatherlessness is now approaching a rough parity with fatherhood as a defining feature of American childhood.
    David Blankenhorn (20th century)
