Here is an improvisation on one of the themes I’ve written for #aliceinwonderlandjazzscore. This is for the short section with the verses about Father William’s antics – standing on his head and balancing eels on his nose. As this was a piano improvisation, the film clips have been added afterwards – I was not playing to the film or attempting to synchronise here.
And below is a ‘lead sheet’ of the piece – a lead sheet is a simple notation of the melody, which usually comes with chord symbols annotation of the harmony. This is a preferred written format for jazz musicians to improvise from.
