Monday Music Quote: Bob Mintzer







"In the name of increasing your knowledge of the music and vocabulary, listening is really a must. It would be the equivalent of reading newspapers on a daily basis and reading novels if you want to become a writer... same process I think." 
          Saxophonist, composer/arranger, band leader Bob Mintzer
