New Free Improvisation

Bebopical Consequences

This video is number 45 in my free improvisation series. It has a little more of a jazz flavor than some of the other improvisations I’ve done lately. Not sure why that has been happening. But that’s the nature of free improvisation, right? You go where the music takes you.

I’ve been enjoying making these improvisation videos. I’ve been doing free improvisations for over forty years now. Doing them on videos, quasi live, this has been a blast. Really! I’ve been telling people that the free improvisations have been the most rewarding playing I’ve done in the past couple years. And I don’t mean that as an insult to anyone I work with. đŸ™‚ Not at all. It’s just that no other performance context is so honest and real as when you sit down and just spill your guts on the camera… so to speak.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy watching/listening as much as I enjoy making the videos.
