Probably, but wouldn't it be more satisfying to create it yourself?

As someone who devotes practically his entire time on making improvised music, I just want to say it is hard work and is based on a lot of fundamentals, which I practice daily. And I have a lot further to go.

I've done the "free way", for decades (with guitar). And the honest truth is that the lack of fundamentals and hard work LIMITED MY CREATIVE EXPRESSION.

The best improvisers out there know that you have to be informed by what came before you. I spend so much time studying masters in genre but I certainly do not sound like them.

Creativity in music is not limited to simple notes. It could be complex both in musical content and rhythm. It is not something one absorbs without exposure. The OP does a disservice by suggesting that "simplicity" allows for satisfactory creative expression. Some things need preparation.

Don't forget Charlie Parker had a cymbal thrown at him by the band, he then went off and did his 'woodshedding'.

+1. One of the top improvisers in Jazz is Brad Mehldau. Guess what his 'woodshedding' is....Brahms.

In fact, one of the unique things about Mehldau is that he can improvise separately with the LH, and RH while doing an ostinato with inner voices. All in 5/4 or 7/4 and rhythmic displacement. Of course with 16th note streams of ideas. Completely improvised of course. Let's try that without preparation.

Reminds me of the joke.. A visitor asks a New Yorker: "Can you tell me how I could get to Carnegie Hall?". Reply: "Practice, practice, practice"! smile

I think that applies to all types of music.

Composers manufacture a product that is universally deemed superfluous—at least until their music enters public consciousness, at which point people begin to say that they could not live without it.

Unfortunately, much of what David thought then, isn't a view held currently on www. sudnow.com.

Since RC didn't elaborate on what he thought had changed, my impression is that the comment is just sort of sour grapes.

That's a good one, RC!

EDIT: Oh darn, the "confused" crazy smiley didn't show up the first time I read the post, and there was just a blank space and "Tony", which I thought was quite clever.

Shucky darn.
