"My Daddy's Name Was James... I was the blood of James. James Blood."

While we were lissening, we did some look up. We were impressed that when he was speaking, James Blood Ulmer was so careful and brilliant at the same time. Most people have to say so much more to get something interesting out. Examples:

"Most music in America has been watered down, but with harmolodics, they don't know what it is, so they can't ruin it. As soon as they figure out what it is, here comes the water."

"Oh man, I'd tell him that the music and the instrument are not the same thing. They've got to put the music in the instrument. The instrument might be wiser than the player, you know."
