Tim Price Bloggin' For Rico Reeds- Some, call it conception!

Some, call it conception! When we change ourselves, the world changes with us, both in the way that the world is affected by our changed actions and in the changed way that we experience the world. It’s a thought process. It’s past a mouthpiece’s a MIND SET. Some, call it conception! Creative thinking is the process which we use when we come up with a new idea. It is the merging of ideas which have not been merged before. New ideas are formed by developing the current ones within our minds. This evolution HAS to be brought on by practice. ( smile) Ongoing creative thinking is the continuous investigation, questioning and analysis that develops through education, training and self-awareness. Ongoing creativity maximizes both accidental and deliberate creative thinking. It is a quest for improvement which never ends. It is an acceptance of and a looking for continuous change that differentiates between ongoing creativity and mental inflexibility. Ongoing creativity takes time and practice to become skillful. Ongoing creative thinking soon becomes an attitude not a technique. The first step to take is to learn the creative thinking techniques so that you can use them deliberately to come up with new ideas. You will then be at an immediate advantage to those who do not know how to use them. You should then practice them to increase your skill at ongoing creative thinking. With practice you may even find it unnecessary to use specific techniques because you may soon have too many ideas without using them at all. - At this point in my's concept. What, where and why I am in pursuit of this creative forward motion. Stop by November 2ed in NYC to hear Bill Goodwin and myself play at Michiko Studios. This is one of the real great places to play in NYC because it's 100% listening. No distraction or jive. MUSIC. THAT...Is a beautiful thing. Till next week- keep on your path- TIM PRICE

  1. Tim: Btw the place in Va Bch that I was telling you about called Havana Nights went out of business a couple of weeks ago.

    However if you are following FB you will see that I am doing a Jazz Trio gig at a restaurant called Stan's American Bistro this Friday, Nov 1st from 8-midnight in Va Bch. This place is not a dedicated jazz place but for now Friday night is Jazz night.

    Take care,
