Greg Heffernan

While we are all waiting for me to get my video loaded onto YouTube (I know you are probably losing sleep over it), here's a very enjoyable cello/piano improv I just found there. The cellist is Greg Heffernan, working with his friend Kamel.

It's interesting that many of the comments on YouTube are skeptical that this is actually an improvisation. When people improvise a lot, they have no difficulty creating pieces with a beginning, middle, and end on the spot. Once you are an experienced improviser, it's easy to believe. These two have a very nice rapport.

Turns out there are quite a few videos if you search "cello improvisation" at YouTube.
