Did You Know?
If I can manage to pull off a melody in a original way and hopefully make a strong statement, then it's not necessary for me to improvise. Just playing the song, the `head' as we say, can be quite emotionally charged, particularly on a pretty, slow ballad and anything else could be overkill!
Performed at at The Jazz Standard, in NYC with "TOP" (Terrasson - Okegwo - Parker) from April 25th -30th, 2006
