Improvisation on Blackberry Blossom for Twelve Minutes with Discussion on How to Improv

I’ve recently began doing live streams on various topics.  This past week I chose the tune “Blackberry Blossom” and just improvised on it for awhile.  Many times my practice sessions begin like this, taking a song and going through various ideas.  A lot of this was just made up on the spot and unrehearsed.

After the demonstration there is a brief discussion about how I approach improvisation.  Reducing a melody down to it’s bare essentials.
