“When someone reaches up to kiss you or says, “I love you,” those acts are reductions of that bigger feeling. But if someone figures out how to communicate that big feeling–how to master a moment of soul–he or she just looks at you with directness and honesty and love. Eyes alone can warm your entire body.”
– Wynton Marsalis, on the power of jazz
That quote is from Wynton’s new book, Moving To Higher Ground: How Jazz Can Change Your Life. There’s also an interview on the Amazon.com page. (just follow the link)
Great interview. Great book. Check them both out.
