Improvisation Quotations

The main three components are the blues, improvisation - which is some kind of element that people are trying to make it up - and swing, which means even though they're making up music, they're trying to make it up together. It feels great, like you're having a great conversation with somebody.
Wynton Marsalis

I allow a lot of room for improvisation and funny stuff. I always feel planned.
Michael Bay

The thing about improvisation is that it's not about what you say. It's listening to what other people say. It's about what you hear.
Paul Merton

With improvisation, I just do it. It might be a total failure but then you just throw the dice again.
Christian Marclay

I find Indian music very funky. I mean it's very soulful, with their own kind of blues. But it's the only other school on the planet that develops improvisation to the high degree that you find in jazz music. So we have a lot of common ground.
John McLaughlin
