Hubert Laws: Flute Virtuoso and NEA Jazz Master

By Published: February 23, 2011
HL: I can tell you about how I feel when I express myself. I've come to realize later in my life that I've taken for granted the language that I've developed throughout the years. I'm forming musical sentences that touch the listener. And sometimes it can come in the form of a melody that's pre-scribed, and also much of it comes from total spontaneity. It's musical expression, but the sentences are musical. They start and come to an end. Sometimes questions, and sometimes you can answer the questions with your expression.
