”... segregating Smooth Jazz and [Straight Ahead] Jazz is more of a critic’s thing. They kinda blew the whole thing up a little more than it is in actuality. I couldn’t be more of a Wynton Marsalis fan. I wish he would be open-minded enough to go to one of my shows.”
Koz continues: ”The more ’American Idol’ oriented - for the lack of a better word – that our music business becomes, the more ostracized instrumental music, and jazz music will get. So, instead of being in many ways self hating - why shouldn’t we all be united and work to advance the cause of jazz - America’s artform?”
”In the purest form of communication, an artist is doing something on stage in front of an audience - and the audience is there to receive that.”

Butch Miles, longtime drummer in the Count Basie Orchestra observed: ““A positive outlook in all things can do wonders both professionally and personally. Keep your mind focused on positive thoughts. It's an amazing medicine for the soul.””
Mike Clark commented: “The more you purify your life - meaning to respect the dignity of life itself - the more liberated your art becomes ... since when you feel good about yourself then you feel good about others. I have also learned everything is up to you anyway, so you don't have to worry about what anyone else is doing or playing or how much they make, etc, as your art and career are up to you."
Among drummer Mauricio DeSouza's discoveries that he shared: “If you do something well, never do it for free.” and "the secret to failure is trying to please everybody. The secret to success is being too dumb to quit.’”
Saxophonist Patrick Cornelius in talking about his new album and perspectives on making music: "I’ve also figured out that the kinds of musicians whom I want to collaborate with are those with well-rounded lives; cats who have a wide
range of interests, hobbies, and life experiences. I want to work with artists from whom I can learn about life and world, not just music."
