Saxophonist quotes
Writing is like jazz. It can be learned, but it can't be taught.

Paul Desmond
We used to get on planes, and they'd ask who we were, and we'd say, 'The Dave Brubeck Quartet', and they'd say, 'Who?' In later years they'd say, 'Oh', which amounts to the same thing.

Paul Desmond
I was overlooked long before anyone knew who I was.

Paul Desmond
I would also like to thank my father who discouraged me from playing the violin at an early age.

Paul Desmond
I think I had it in the back of my mind that I wanted it to sound like a dry martini.

Paul Desmond
A course never quite looks the same way twice. The combinations of weather, season, light, feelings and thoughts that you find there are ever-changing.

Joe Henderson
A lesser but still fundamental rule of racing is that you properly enter the event. Anyone who doesn't but still insists on running interferes with the paying customers.

Joe Henderson
Almost any watch will do a basic timing job. All you really need is one that freezes time at the end of your run.

Joe Henderson
An unrepentant course-cutter surfaced again at the Los Angeles Marathon. Richard Roodberg claimed to have won the age 70-74 title in 3:10 - nearly an hour ahead of the real winner in that group.

Joe Henderson
Anyone who thinks this sounds boring doesn't have a runner's mindset or hasn't chosen the courses well. To a runner in just the right place, each repetition there has a comfortable sameness to it. And each run there also is a little different from any other.

Joe Henderson
Arthur Lydiard offered an escape route. The coach from New Zealand told me in a 1970 interview than his runners, once known for their 100-mile weeks, now largely ignored mileage.

Joe Henderson
As we ran that skinny leg, I said to Peter, 'Think how easy it would be to cross the street early and save a quarter-mile per lap. It's dark, no one is checking us at the turnaround. Who would know?'

Joe Henderson
Back when running with a reliable watch first became an option, I stepped into a time trap. Each course was measured, each run timed and each a course-record attempt.

Joe Henderson
Banditry is an annoyance - at most a misdemeanor. Course-cutting is a major crime against the self-policing honesty of the sport.

Joe Henderson
Buzz has reduced my range. Running safely with him means using fewer and shorter routes, with multiple laps per day or multiple returns there per week. Neither of us minds repeating ourselves. This is what runners do.
