Wynton Marsalis on technology

“I don’t think we should feel that because our tools have become more advanced, we are more advanced. The technology of the soul has not changed for a long time. Many times we use technological advances to stand in for we are more advanced. Jazz is not like that. You can come up with all the synthesizers you want, it’s still not going to be able to swing….This music celebrates human beings and our creativity.” — Wynton Marsalis
