Bet You’ve Never Heard This One Before! Then again… neither have I



You know, I wish there was a better word for improvisation.  It’s so overused.  And there are so many kinds of improvisations.  I was playing around with my flute and recorded what I played.  It’s never been played before, and if it’s nothing special, it will probably never be played again!  Somehow the word improvisation sounds too musical jargon for that.  Jam session?  Maybe.  But that sounds like a group band…

Any ideas?  What term do you use for improvising a new melody?

Anyway, so here’s my flute improvi-jam session…
