I love YouTube. I just caught this discussion or rather interview with Bill Evans the great jazz pianist, composer and arranger. He talks about the creative process. Yet the interviewer talks about how as an amateur or a part timer who doesn’t have to explore at the level that Bill Evans is at, does not have the time to improvise past a certain skill level.

But Mr Evans says “You’ve got to be real and authentic.”
I would hope that’s what we try to re-create here on everyone one of our gigs. We play shows all over the USA. I think that’s one thing that we need to be highly aware of, no matter what style of music we are playing, to remain authentic. An audience can always detect BS.
Anyway, check out this short video.
