Beautiful Improvisation



This improvisation reminds me of my feelings, the goosebumps that traversed the lengths of both arms when my baby brother played piano for me when I visited home and our resuscitated gallery in Nairobi, Kenya, after being gone for so long.  The energy and honesty, the way he trusted himself and his fingers as they roamed the keys, allowing me a glimpse into his inner feelings.  On that day he played melodies created on the spot, that captured so beautifully what we were all feeling.

Have a good weekend.

  1. There is no other music like live music. So much passion. And you are right, there is so much truth in live music.

  3. Ms. Bar B: I love most the honest give and go between the two musicians, bona fide jazz bassist Richard Bono and vocal percussionist Bobby McFerrin.

    Rethabile: He is one of mine too. He knows his stuff and so humble about it.
