All this had to be said in music ...

And nevertheless : how to activate the student a sense of humor in his improvisation?

Hello, I've been going through a lot of jazz tutorials lately too & wanted to say thank you to Dave Frank as well. You have a great talent for humanizing the jazz lessons that I appreciate, and your humor is part of it. I lived 6 or 7 years in NYC, and I think your style reminds me of that happy time too maybe. smile (Where else would "slice of pizza" count out quarter notes? Where I grew up it'd more likely be Mississippi.)

My favorite funny classic jazz player has to be Thomas Fats Waller, and my favorite catch phrase of his has to be "One never knows, do one?" I love his banter. He starts off 'You're Feet's Too Big' with a stomping octave walk in the bass and says "Who's that walkin' round here? / Mercy, sounds like baby patter / Baby elephant patter, that's what I calls it."

"Your pedal extremities are collasus!" Fats
I glad the videos didn't have a de-humanizing effect on you..anybody ever hear of Les Dawson? He was a famous funny English pianist/comedienne...I used to watch Pete Barbutti on the Tonight Show, he was great..he'd start by moving the Steinway bench up as he'd play slow ascending chromatic lines)
