Jazz improvisation is an ever evolving palette of colors driven by the events of the present and past. As time inevitably marches forth, the jazz musician is afforded the opportunity to create a current assessment of the moment or revisit a past composition and interpretation with the present tense lens. In this hour we will explore some fresh sounds along with reinterpretations of past explorations.
