We're just trying to provide something original to the scene. All of my players are great improvisers but we try to build on what we accomplished the night before. But once we play it like that for awhile it inevitablely changes into something else, a different feel, mood, tempo, whatever...so we don't get tired of playing it.
I love jazz because is about creation.
I was first exposed to jazz when a was a kid.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Metheny Trio in Puerto Rico /
The first jazz-fusion record I bought was Return to Forever.
