亚伦·迪尔(Aaron Diehl)名言

A lot of times, we look at jazz in eras. How can we not keep those eras separate and think of the language as one complete continuum? It's all interrelated, and it's all evolutionary.

很多时候,我们看到的是时代的爵士乐。我们怎么能不把这些时代分开,把语言看作一个完整的连续体呢?这都是相互关联的,都是进化的。

It's much like playing jazz, flying. It's multitasking in real time. You have a number of instruments that alone won't tell you exactly what the airplane is doing but together give you a picture of everything that's going on.

就像是演奏爵士,飞行。它实时多任务。你有很多仪器,它们单独一个也不能告诉你飞机到底在做什么,但一起给你一张正在发生的一切的图片。

My grandfather, Arthur Baskerville, he played and still plays a little bit piano and trombone, and so when I was a kid, I always heard jazz around the house, but I also went to his gigs, whether it be a Saturday brunch in my hometown Columbus, Ohio. We'd go and hear him play with some of the local musicians.

我的祖父,亚瑟巴斯克维尔,他演奏,现在还弹一点钢琴和长号,所以当我还是个孩子的时候,我总是在家里听到爵士乐,但我也去他的演唱会,无论是在我的家乡俄亥俄州哥伦布的周六早午餐。我们会去听他和一些当地音乐家一起演奏。

My father, I think he played percussion in high school. My mother played piano when she was very young, but only for a brief while. I don't think she had a great teacher. In any case, neither of them were really into music at a young age.

我父亲,我想他在高中时打过打击乐。我母亲很小的时候就弹钢琴了,但只弹了一小会儿。我认为她没有一个好老师。不管怎么说,他们两人在很小的时候都不太喜欢音乐。

I had experiences or exposure to music in church. I went to a church, it was very unique. It was a predominantly African American Catholic church. So they would have - one mass would be traditional church music, and then the other mass would be gospel music.

我有过在教堂听音乐的经历。我去了一个教堂,很特别。那是一个以非裔美国人为主的天主教堂。所以他们会有一个弥撒是传统的教会音乐,然后另一个弥撒是福音音乐。

I consider myself very fortunate. I mean, I think there's that old saying, 'Where there's a will, there's a way,' and I just have such a passion for jazz music and playing the piano that I just find a way to make it work, so to speak. Fortunately, I have so far.

我认为自己很幸运。我的意思是,我觉得有句老话,‘有志者事竟成’,我就是对爵士乐和弹钢琴有着如此强烈的热情,可以说,我就是想办法让它发挥作用。幸运的是,到目前为止,我已经做到了。

I'm not saying that in order to be a great jazz musician you have to be a great classical pianist first. But I am saying that it makes things easier when you can get around the instrument, and you have some idea of how to approach the various hurdles.

我不是说要成为一个伟大的爵士乐音乐家,你必须先成为一个伟大的古典钢琴家。但我想说的是,如果你能绕过乐器,并且你对如何跨过各种障碍有了一些想法,事情就会变得更容易。

The older I get, the more I realize the importance of maintaining an even temperament - not getting too emotional, focusing on the task at hand. You don't want to make a business deal based on your emotions.

年龄越大,我就越意识到保持平和的气质的重要性——不要太情绪化,专注于手头的任务。你不想根据自己的情绪来做生意。
