Jazz is the art of aligning talent so it can perform well

I'm really enjoying getting the regular email newsletter from Brian Fraser of Jazzthink. Overnight this gem - Brian's tip for this month - arrived in my inbox:

Jazz is the art of aligning talent so it can perform well. Musicians discover and develop their own talent through practice - lots of practice - so they can express their genius. They join with others who have done the same to align themselves in playing melodies, rhythms, and harmonies that keep them all in sync and please their audiences. From the core of their genius they align with others to play the core of their common purpose. Exceptional managers and leaders model this process and create an inviting space for it to happen consistently.
