Parker: Sound any better that time? All right. You remember we were talking about John Philip Sousa...great march composer around the turn of the century. He was a very famous man...but he had a huge thing about recorded music. He would never allow his music to be recorded. Even when Thomas Edison came to him with his brand-new invention, the phonograph. But Edison didn't care. He went ahead and did it anyhow. Secretly he recorded his marching band in a parade, which I guess makes it the very first bootleg. So what do you think about that? Do you think it's okay now? What about today's performers? Should you be able to just walk up in the middle of the stage...plug in your CD player to a Marshall Stack and...that's it? It's good enough? I don't know. I'm a lot older than you but I tend to think that...there's an element of music...that cannot be captured. Life cannot be captured. The human heart cannot be captured. The moment of creation itself is fleeting.

Students: Lord! What's wrong with him?
