Unlike most other art forms, jazz creativity emerges directly in performance through improvisation. Every jazz performance is unique and comes together in real time while it is being played. Each moment is an original contribution, and not merely an interpretation.



It is clear that some musicians push the envelope more than others. They take necessary risks to explore new territory. Sometimes, they redefine the nature of jazz itself. While they appreciate their lineage, they are not satisfied with merely pursuing what came before them. What do such musicians themselves think of their creative process. What leads them to push the envelope and expand their repertoire and approach?



AAJ Contributor Victor L. Schermer decided to investigate a subject that often arises, but is rarely articulated in any kind of conclusive manner. Interviewing saxophonist David Liebman and pianist Jim Ridl - two players who are definitive of the jazz spirit - it's a revealing look at how two improvising musicians do what they do. Many questions are answered; some remain a mystery.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
