“You can’t just put superior musicians with each other and tell them to go do anything lovely,” he continued. “You have to have aid. The spirits have to consider in you, they have to age you, they have to be there for you, they have to tutorial you, they have to guard you, they have to converse by way of you. When you surrender to that environment and consciously allow go and allow it talk, beautiful issues occur.”
