"Listen to the Stories"
Charlie Parker used to hang out in Charlie's Tavern, a musician's bar in midtown New York. To the dismay of his acolytes, he liked to play country records on the jukebox. There was reluctance to question the taste of mighty Bird, but finally a brave jazzman asked him. "How can you stand that stuff?" Bird looked at him and said, "The stories, man. Listen to the stories!" --Nat Hentoff, Listen To The StoriesIf you have the time, take a moment and listen to Patsy Cline tell a story.
