PS: Of course tonight's gigs at the Jazz Café or The Globe could well join the above list!
Tim Berne: "My guys improvise. They're not going to do something just because it works, or it worked the night before." - (Downbeat December 2004.)
Barry McRae: “Arguments about the importance or even the necessity for improvisation in jazz are never likely to be resolved.” – (Jazz Journal December 1992)
