Improv 66 – Root of the Problem

Free improvisation based on Route 66.

Root of the Problem – Improvisation #66

Here’s an improvisation I did based on good old fashioned B Flat blues. Most of my improvisations don’t have set chord progressions, but for this one, I was thinking about Route 66 – this being the 66th improvisation in my video series. So yeah, I went there.

I am leaning more and more towards trying to keep my trumpet improvisations authentic. There are blatant “errors” in this video and I don’t care one bit. This is a lesson I am learning perhaps way too late in life. Great music is not about perfection. It’s about making a human connection, and I feel I’ve done that in this recording.
