If God was a perfectionist, She would have made us anyway.

…We musicians are like transmitters spreading the signal of intangible and otherwise elusive messages that penetrate our emotional vehicles and our higher consciousness. That message moves our being; makes us love sick; makes our hearts tender; brings us joy; makes us sad; makes us smart; it’ll get us inspired; motivates soldiers at war; helps stop wars; enhances patriotism; makes rebels; we could be starving, sick, abused and even dying and music will redeem us; makes us fly; yes, I think music is connected to spirituality.

Jazz, quantum physics and Zen, constitute some of life’s most elusive and perplexing mysteries.

We Jazz musicians have the capacity to unlock the universe each time we play.... No wonder we’re often seen as arrogant!

You don’t have to be inconsistent to be consistent with inconsistencies…

Sometimes life isn’t as polished as it seems…. it is actually better!

We are plankton in a sea of great minds still pretending to be the center of the universe.

Of course, the “banality of evil” remains ever present and dominates the American People into submission to the lowest denominator. Pay attention or pay the price.

Play, play, play! Growing up is becoming who we are not.

If you will “buy in” I will “reach out”, “shift paradigm” and “source” our “assets” to avoid “peripheral competency” among your “SWAT team”!
Don’t you get tired of corporate lingo?
It could have just been elegantly stated: ‘If you buy my bullshit I will betray my company and save your ass’.
— Carli Munoz
Wherever you go, leave a good scent.
— Carli Munoz
I’ll just as well be a stoic and not let ‘Murphy’ get the best of me.
— Carli Munoz
If we could all remember what it was like to be a child, the world would be a more pleasant world.

The “home of the brave” has been desecrated… and toxicity runs now through the jugular of a nation lost in malfeasance. We need this bad joke, this tasteless show to be over — now. So where is ‘the brave’ now! Where are the keepers of truth as we see even the freedom of the press crumbling down before our eyes?
— Carli Munoz
It could be that in the end (provided there is one) our sins will be forgiven, but meanwhile we have to face the consequences.

This is my favorite song of all times and I still get overwhelmed when I hear it… It’s not just the beautiful complexity of the composition and the performance, but if you dig into the lyrics you’ll find the most eloquent essay of the history of mankind put into song — Surf’s Up!
— Carli Munoz
Kudos to Nike. To me Kaepernick and Reid are as much heroes as military ones, they are just in a different kind of battle — perhaps even a more difficult one. So one must not be confused by symbols— symbols are as good as what they support and sometimes they are excessively taken in black and white.... But, gray matters.
