“Morš štekat, da štekaš, a štekaš?” / Ustvarjalni nasveti Thelonius Monk-a

Pred leti sem v neki reviji našel  zanimive nasvete Thelonius Monka iz leta 1960. Kot  ponavadi sem si izrezke nekam spravil in na njih pozabil. Včeraj  sem pospravljal  preteklost in naletel na njih…


- Just because you’re not a  drummer, doesn’t mean that you don’t have to keep time.

- pat your foot and sing the melody in your head when you play

- make the drummer sound good

- discrimination is important

- you’ve got to dig it to dig it, you dig?

 - all reet!

 - always know…(Monk)

- it must be allways night, otherwise they wouldn’t need the lights

- let’s lift the band stand!!

- I want to avoid hecklers

- don’t play the piano part, I am playing that. Don’t listen to me, I am supposedto be accompaning you!

- the inside of the tune (The bridge) is the part that makes the outside sound good

- don’t play everything (or everytime), let some things go by. Some music just imagined -what you don’t play can be more important, that what you do play.

- allways leave them wanting more

- a note can be small as a pin or as big as the world, it depends on your imagination.

stay in shape! Sometimes a musician waits for a gig and when it comes, he’s out of shape and can’t make it.

- when you are swinging, swing some more! (What should we wear tonight?) Sharp as possible!

- don’t sound anybody for a gig, just be on the scene.

- those pieces were written so as to have something to play and to get cats interested enough to come to rehearsal!

- you’ got it! If you don’t want to play, tel a joke or dance, but in any case, you got it! (to a drummer who didn’t want to solo)

- whatever you think can’t be done, somebody will come along and do it. A genius is the one most like himself.

- they tried to get me to hate white people, but someone would allways come along and spoil it.

    Super! Izgleda, da ti štekaš!
    Metronom ni napravica. Metronom je princip.
