    Thanks Dennis. In a way it confirms what I thought is at least occasionally happening and what my ears are telling me. Even though in discussions there's a lot of emphasis on always outlining the changes, what happens in practice sometimes is just thinking about the key center. Of course players as experienced as Samson is can make it work better than others.

    Yes the idea of "playing changes" is a lot more complex than it seems. I was the same when I was starting out. It's a matter of understanding where the harmony is going, where the phrases are going, where the tensions/resolutions are, etc. It's a mix of all these things that all the great improvisers understood. I started using the term "harmonic direction" recently to explain this concept. It's really a spectrum: on one end you have the idea of outlining every single chord, and on the other side, you have the idea of playing in the key centre.
