your cheating heart

There is a certain gesture I like using currently as a starting point in improvisations, like the way certain people have a usual chess opening. It positions me to consider a bunch of angles, then the piece proceeds – who knows in which direction. For some years, thought as an improvisor, one should make everything new always. That is still part of my thinking but now less interested in being anal about it. It’s like if a country singer does Your Cheatin’ Heart tonight in Toronto it isn’t the exact same tomorrow in Peterborough, it isn’t the same moment.
