Why is the new album called “Improvation”?

I’ve been asked why the new album is called Improvation.

The quick answer is that I was typing improvisation and misspelt it.

But then I thought that “improvation” covered the way that I composed and played the tracks on the album. Some of the tracks are compositions, while some evolved out of improvisations. And in both cases, the recording is a one-off performance, because there are elements of improvisation in all of the performances. On the other hand, it’s not full-blown improvisation in the sense that a jazz musician would have an extended improvised section in a piece.

So! Improvation it is.
