  • Guy Mintus: (See interview below) “I think jazz has that great capacity to surprise,” he said. “That’s why I like playing in front of an audience, and in touring, we’ve toured all over the world, the surprises always come. You can’t get that in a video, or in a CD. It just happens, and the audiences surprise you, too, all over the world. Sometimes, it’s so strange, it’s almost ecstatic, the clapping, the audience making noise.”
