RE: 10 Favorite Improvisers Thread
OK, I know the 10 favorites thing is a little silly. My ten favorites can
change with my blood sugar levels and amount of sleep I got the night
before. It was an arbitrary number.
Here's my reasoning behind it. By putting a limit on the list, I was hoping
to get people to think about their choices.
My reason for starting the thread was to find some new music to check out.
By puting a number on it, I thought I would get more qualified data that I
could sort through to check out, rather than rambling lists containing
scores of individuals. If I see some people showing up on multiple posts
that I have not heard of, I'm going to be more likely to check them out.
Here's my list for today (note sure these are all improvisors):
Not much sleep last night, as you can see from above.
Thanks for all your input,
