mellow and beautiful

"To get it all happening you have to have the sweet, mellow and beautiful and then you have to have the opposite, the madness. But you always have to have the blues,also the speed and the chops have to be there when you want to use them, where do you think the modern contemporary pentatonic of McCoy and the others came from... Africa. all jazz evolved from the blues from Africa. If I hear a player who doesn't state the blues at some stage in his solo. then I know he's nothing!" Serge Ermoll
