One of my favorite Armstrong remarks was his, "If it gits off the 
groun, it don't matter what tune you playin.  An if don't git off the 
groun, it don't matter what tune you playin."

That about sums up matter of what tunes to play.

between the fighting man and the thinking man is liable to find its 
fighting done by fools and its thinking by cowards."--Sir William
