Musical IQ Question #27: Which of the following musicians was most likely to be found jamming with his buds, blowing improvised solos, until the wee hours of the morn? A) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, B) Charlie Parker, or C) Ravi Shankar. If you answered A, B or C then you would be 100% correct because they were all brilliant improvisors in their respective genres. Yes, Mozart along with J.S. Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt were all renown improvisers as are all of the great Indian Raga players. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a genre that did not embrace improvisation. So, whatever style you play, you MUST learn how to improvise. There's no 'best' way to do that but Charlie Parker offered some sound advice; "Learn everything, then forget it all."
