Return of the Secaucus 7 Quotes

Mark Arnott as Jeff Andrews

  • (Mark Arnott) "My problem is the repetitiveness. Y'know -- wine, women, and whiteline fever, over and over. Whereas, progressive is existential. You got these chromatic melodies, right? To use for, like, a springboard into all kinds of experiments. Even the backbeat is full of nuances. You know that there's a central rhythmic idea going on, but you're never quite sure when it's going to pop up. Now, you-you put your, ah, your-your counterpoint on top of that, your passing tones, your arpeggios, your polyrhythms, your parallel scales, your focal harmonies -- and it's uncertain, right? It's exploratory. It's like life."
