Improvisation with Brad Terry

A few of us got together on May 4th in the studio with Brad Terry to experiment with theater improvisation to live music.  Brad is an amazing musician who has played with quite a number of jazz greats including Dizzy Gillespie.  Despite his notoriety, Brad is extremely humble and generous and a real charm to experiment with.  It was an interesting and inspiring afternoon!  We are looking forward to having him back along with his virtuoso jazz guitarist.  I think the high point of the day for me personally was when Brad started playing, then he abruptly stopped and said, "The acoustics in here are wonderful!"
