Jazz Journal – Gilad Atzmon, Musical Capital


Interesting Jazz Journal cover story on Gilad Atzmon

Gilad Atzmon - Writings - Jazz Journal - Gilad Atzmon Musical Capital

“. . . the best art – the best jazz – was produced when Coltrane and Bird were making heavy use of narcotic elements. Jazz is a suicidal art form. You sacrifice your livelihood for the sake of music. When politicians get involved and decide who will get the money, who should be part of the discourse, we make everything conscious. We are basically killing the existential, libidinal spontaneity of this art form.”

One thought on “Jazz Journal – Gilad Atzmon, Musical Capital

  1. cool quote! definitely provocative and true in many respects. I actually just started a video blog on the creative process/power of music (as i see it from my perspective as a singer/songwriter). such interesting questions. Jazz has got to be one of the most powerful genres of music, but i think you have to be seeing it live to get the full effect. enjoyed the post thanks!
