In that context, Steve Roach once said in an interview (ca. 1987) that he can't make much of jazz musicians who can squeeze a hundred notes into one bar -- to him, it was more important to squeeze the *right* note into that bar.

as stated by Markus Reuter in the Innerviews interview

“Do I have to be able to play fast? Can I say the same thing with one note better than I can say it with 100 notes? I don’t necessarily think quantities really matter. It doesn’t matter if you play 100 notes or one note. I don’t care as long as the quality and intention is there. This definitely ties into coming into music with an open heart"
