Do You Like Jazz?

“Life is a lot like jazz…it’s best when you improvise.” – George Gershwin

“Oh, you have a plan.  That’s nice.”  The Universe.

We all make plans.  And rarely do they play out the way we draft them.  Because, well, life.

And good jazz is not just a kid pounding away at a keyboard or making weird synchopated sounds.  The controlled chaos, the riffs off of the unexpected to create something with a loose structure and elegance and cohesion, that is the secret to everything and comes from understanding the rules and what is beyond your control.
