Andrew Hill: Coming Back Full Circle: "...a certain element of the black music was lost. Once it wasn't supported by the corporations, but it breathed better; it was more naturally selected by the people - who they liked, who they didn't. But now, we're dealing with a digital revolution. People will spend a hundred dollars for a Knicks ticket, but they won't spend it on jazz. And jazz had become such a high - priced music and at the same time, the selection wasn't based on knowledge - it was mostly hype."
