“It’s easier to copy someone else than to find out how to avoid sounding like someone else.” – Ornette Coleman

In pop music, there’s a formula.  Someone decides what sells and the music fits the pattern.  In Jazz, you get ridiculed if you sound like somebody else.

If you are going to take your time and treasure to start a company, do something different.  That way you can be sure you’ll do it better than anyone else.
