There are simply two kinds of music

"There are simply two kinds of music, good music and the other kind... the only yardstick by which the result should be judged is simply that of how it sounds. If it sounds good it's successful; if it doesn't it has failed."

– Duke Ellington (Where Is Jazz Going? Music Journal (1962) Reproduced in The Duke Ellington Reader)
