The Pointer: This interviewer is clearly a deaf man talking. How could he possibly play music?
The Koan:
An interviewer talking to Miles Davis referred to the music Miles played as Jazz.
Miles said, “Don’t call it Jazz that makes you think of black people, it makes it a stereotype – just call it music.”
The interviewer who was a fine musician himself said “When I think of Jazz I don’t think of black people, I think of New York in the sunset, the light on the East river.”
Miles smiled and said “Well in that case you could play in our band.”
So tell me – Who is it that can play in the band?
How can you play this music in your life?
