Improvisation : Its Nature And Practice In Music

Description

Derek Bailey's Improvisation , originally published in 1980, and here updated and extended with new interviews and photographs, is the first book to deal with the nature of improvisation in all its forms,Indian music, flamenco, baroque, organ music, rock, jazz, contemporary, and "free" music.
