descriptions, reviews, &c.

"I am convinced that improvised music is the most modern kind of music, since it has created a completely new kind of musician, an integral musician, who is conductor, composer and performer at the same time. An improvisor has to do everything himself, from production to marketing, he has to think socially when playing with others, i.e. he has to be able to develop common goals, to assume responsibility, but also to step back when necessary."-Theo Jörgensmann
