He doesn't rehearse...

"He doesn't rehearse. ... He chooses the people he's going to play with shortly before the session, so everyone is playing by the seat of their pants, and the music is at constant risk, subject to the weaknesses of whoever's in the room. But he gets absolutely spontaneous moments of greatness you couldn't rehearse."

I love his music, in all its incarnations. He seemed very strange in college (he stared a lot in the refectory), but I guess one can hear that in his lyrical utterances. Strangely beautiful.
