“We’d like to have you all join in with us on this one and help us find the groove by patting your feet, or popping your fingers, or clapping your hands, or shaking your heads . . . or shaking whatever else you want to shake.”

–Horace Silver
Doin’ the Thing, Blue Note, 1959.

“If you feel like patting your feet, pat your feet. If you feel like clapping your hands, clap your hands. And if you feel like taking off your shoes, take off your shoes. We are here to have a ball. So we want you to leave your worldly troubles outside and come in here and swing.”

–Art Blakey
At the Jazz Corner of the World,
Blue Note, 1959.
