What is Improvisation (2)

In the mid 1970s Derek Bailey, the English avant-garde guitarist, was to perform solo at the London School of Economics. He stepped on stage carrying a portable television along with his guitar and declared to the small audience: "Oscar Peterson is on later. I 've always wanted to play with him". An hour later he switched on the television and jammed with the Oscar Peterson trio.
