The thrill of the conversation

The thrill is in the conversation

Playing with other musicians, the spontaneity of what will happen next,
The rehearsal went well but what will happen when you’re in the moment?

When onstage you start mind melding with the audience
Will you remember the hits or will you only have your ears to go on?

How much can you listen, separate and still be a part of the band? the players? The song? Your life?

The thrilling aspect of the conversation is revealed when it has no agenda
Other than to find the next subject and to continue the interaction…

The brilliance in spontaneous music is that it’s no different than a great conversation.
