“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.
