This program examines frameworks in which jazz musicians improvise and looks at the interrelationship between songwriter and improviser. Courtney Pine uses his percussion-heavy "Jazz Step," based on 12-bar blues, as a jumping-off point to discuss how a small group interacts when improvising as well as matters of technique such as riffs, three-chord progressions, and blues scales. Django Bates works within a big band context to dig into the dynamics of scoring a large-scale piece where improvisation is to play a large part. When it comes to jazz, a piece isn't finished being written until it's played.
