Miles Davis, improvisational jazz wonder developed a new form of jazz outwith the accepted boundaries of music. He eschewed accepted understanding of chords and scales and gave the world amazing music. He did this, not by adding notes but by something exceptional. “It’s not the notes you play; it’s the notes you don’t play.”
In a presentation, the freedom to express oneself is a gift. The possibilities are endless. The challenge is to connect, to express oneself and to share insights, whatever the topic suggested. Sometimes we play too many notes. The reality is that fewer notes, chosen and specific tells a clearer story than a huge, messy noise of them.
Have a listen this, even if you have never listened to Miles.
