bird jam

Walking through the neighbourhood many birds making their calls. Seems to me within all those different melodies, which are enjoyable to listen to as a collage but separate from that, each “player” is looking to hear another one who has the same call. That they want to find each other or like players. If I jam with anyone, at some points I might punctuate my playing to match rhythmically or melodically another musician. Like if I hear the pattern the drummer is playing on the bell of the ride or the bass player ‘s figure and then alter my own contribution to mirror them in some definite way what happens is they notice and look around to find who it is and when they know it’s me they smile because I heard them and am playing with them in a specific way.
