At its purest, the core of Jazz Improvisation defies explanation...it's intangible...but you know it when you hear it! It is hard to define, for instance like when first seeing a rainbow, but as you approach closer it disappears as you try to touch! This is the art of creating a unique musical statement ''on the spur of the moment'', in the now, composing on the spot, without prior practice or plan! It is a most freeing experience! I invite you to explore my keyboard concepts and thought on the inventive pulse of jazz! -Allen J. Friedman.
