"Pure Inspiration" Courtesy of Lee Konitz

I came across this interview with Lee Konitz, who made such a big contribution at the Creative Music Studio.

In it, Lee describes a ten-step approach to improvising on a melody that seems so practical and sensible. The bonus is the tenth step, which he describes as "an act of pure inspiration."

Sometimes the simplest approaches are the best.
