卡拉·布莱(Carla Bley)名言

Listening is more important than anything else because that's what music is. Somebody is playing something and you're receiving it. It is sending and receiving.

倾听比任何事情都重要,因为音乐就是这样。有人在演奏什么,而你却收到了。它是发送和接收。

卡拉·布莱

When you are studying jazz, the best thing to do is listen to records or listen to live music. It isn't as though you go to a teacher. You just listen as much as you can and absorb everything.

当你在学习爵士乐时,最好的办法就是听唱片或听现场音乐。你不像是去找老师似的。你只要尽可能多地倾听,吸收一切。

Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker seemed so sophisticated and bad. I wanted to be like that.

格里·穆利根和切特·贝克看起来既老练又坏。我想成为那样。

I don't enjoy traveling in America. I don't like the food, the cars. It is not exotic enough. It all tastes a bit like airline food.

我不喜欢在美国旅行。我不喜欢食物和车。这还不够奇特。吃起来都有点像航空食品。

I got started when I was 3 years old because my father was a music teacher and my lessons were free. Instead of learning to walk, you learn to play the piano.

我三岁的时候就开始学习了,因为我父亲是一名音乐老师,我的课程是免费的。你不是学走路,而是学弹钢琴。

卡拉·布莱

I just got to hear every note. After I left Birdland, I started working at the Jazz Gallery. In the end, I still couldn't play, but I knew how to listen. I was probably the world's best listener.

我只需要听到每一个音符。离开伯德兰后,我开始在爵士画廊工作。最后,我仍然不能玩,但我知道如何倾听。我可能是世界上最好的倾听者。
