Description

Composer's note:  I was already an established composer and a double bassist with Phoenix
Symphony when I was introduced to the solo piano improvisation of Keith
Jarrett in the mid-1970's. I had improvised with rock and jazz bands
and used improvisation in my compositions, but the quality of Jarrett's
music was beyond what I had thought possible. It had contrast, variety,
tremendous imagination and, yet, structural integrity. The music was
solid enough to have been composed, but it obviously wasn't; it was too spontaneous and free. This mind-expanding experience
triggered a life-long preoccupation with free improvisation that has
also influenced my composition, in one way or another, ever since. More listening excerpts here.
