"It’s not about your music—it’s about what makes your music your music. You’ve got to have a feeling like that. You have to have a reason for your music. Have something besides the technical. Make it for something. Make it for kindness, make it for peace, whatever it is. You know what I mean?"

Just read it via your Facebook link—thanks for posting it. I’ve been thinking about revisiting the RCA box ever since Larry’s thread about whether or not SR worked at all w/Miles circa 1961-62.  Amazing to think of all that Sonny’s seen and played in his near-90 years on the planet. He’s a master human being.
