Alfredo – I couldn’t agree more. This genre of jazz is what gets my musical juices flowing. I can’t hear T. Monk or Charlie Parker without wanting to pick up my horn and try to play along (emphasis on th word “try”). Over the years I have met a number of people who say they like jazz, but not the improvisation only the structured parts-the music that sounds familiar to them. To me it is the solos that rally reach within and express the fluidity and beauty of music.
