Thread Name: What is improvisation ?
Subject: RE: What is improvisation ?
I'm reminded of the scene in Moliere's Le Boutgeois Gentilhomme when M.Jourdain sudenly realises "For more than forty years I have been speaking prose without knowing it."

We spend the whole of our life improvising our way along. Some people seem to have the ability sudddenly to cease improvising when they are making music, but I could never manage to get the knack.
