02/09/2014 (Continuous Resonance) 2 improvisations--the developmental process

Date: 02/09/2014

Instrument: Tenor saxophone

Location: Home studio in Clinton, WA (Whidbey Island)

Performed acoustically


I recorded two improvisations today, labeled “Initial Version” and “Final Version” respectively.  After recording the Initial Version, I ultimately felt that I had not fulfilled the mission of the improvisation and decided to use this take as an initial springboard for further development.  I recorded a second piece with a complimentary, and in my estimation, more successful overall approach, noted here as the Final Version.
