Classical Music and Improvisation 

Improvisation used within the classical music tradition can be thought of as, music properly heightened by the improvising soloist. 

Donal Fox, Herbie Hancock, Abdullah Ibrahim, David Baker are heard here using this approach to do just that.

Today, classical music composers, performers, use improvisation and traditional forms to shape their works as a normative approach. This is music  jammed up, swung another was. Essays of Note looks this week at a few examples of works, artistry of composers, soloists who use improvisation as a part of their language.  We hope you enjoy! Don't miss any of Blog Talk Radio's/ Tavis Smiley networks shows.  Hear what 30,000 listeners have experienced with ACC ear You There!  Be sure to follow us now on Twitter.
