Thread Name: What is improvisation ?
Subject: RE: What is improvisation ?
I find that as my ability to play increases, my ability to improvise grows with it.

To me, improv is the heart of music. It's what keeps old pieces fresh, and breathes new life into forgotten ones.

The only danger lies in over improvising.

Do that, and you're playing jazz.
