"I'd like to put the call out to my fellow musicians: let us all vow to put ourselves at maximum creative risk whenever possible. In this climate, what do we really have to lose? If the experience enables us to say something authentic or to be more fully present in the world, then it will have been worth it—for ourselves and for others who are listening."
this is quoted from a vjay Iyer article at allaboutjazz.com. i'm wondering how you guys approach taking risks, or how you conceptualize it. in a modality so conducive for taking risks (improvisation), how can we free ourselves from our pre-conceived crutches and discover new sounds and ideas?
