“I think we musicians are emissaries.
Every time we go before the public,
we’re there to make converts.”
—Hazel Dorothy Scott
"Developing an audience feels like being a politician.
You've got to stand in front of the subway and
meet people and kiss babies and literally
convert people one after the other."
"An audience is the only group I can tolerate, and
the audience wouldn't be a group if it wasn't for me."
