Although I am trained as a 'classical' player, I feel much kinship with jazz players like Johan Coltrane (for whom I have developed an obsession since late 2015) and Sonny Rollins. This article in The NY Times for example:
Rollins always wanted to learn more. And I recognize that. I always want to push myself to go on, and get to know different stuff, and learn how to play it. I feel like an eternal student.
