what are some of your favorite musical quotations (when composers or improvisers use a small portion of a well known theme in a segment of their works)

another example of musical quotation is this cool blues charlie parker lick at 0:05 a lot of jazz players use in their improvisations



the first notes of the theme of cry me a river became part of the language and licks to use during jazz improvisations
