This and 4.00 will get you a decent cup of coffee at Starbucks. One man's treasure is another man's trash. For my money however, I will take the 900 hours of improv that yield 3-4 CDs of thrak over that cup full of discipline any day of the week. One man's interpretive path of creativity, or successful method of musical construction, is yet another man's whirlpool of lost hope. The problem with most "learned" musicians and engineers is that they have no point of reference to valuate the co-frequency that high level improv in part consists of. If they did, quite simply we would need a whole new dewey decimal system. Don't get me wrong however, logical science is an absolutely necessary polarization with respect to it's counter part, abstract creativity. It's like right & left, night and day, black and white, etc. It takes both for a functional whole to exist. Those lone path discipline fanatics that consider most improv to be in their estimation akin to "musical farts in a windstorm", simply don't "get" the process. Mostly because based on their limited experience, it's beyond them. Bottom line" Structure is no less or more valuable than chaos. Without equal parts of each, music would not exist at all, nor the universe we live in for that matter.
