    Hey y'all,

    Here is the official video of a TED talk I did last month where I spoke on the topic of improvisation and related it to non-musical life--check it out if you get a chance!

    Nice job Victor, and congratulations on presenting on Tedx! You could take that talk on the road.

    Since I am posting this on TM, I'll also say I like your cornet :)

    Looks like you had a lot of fun and that's a great look for your career! How many people were there and were you compensated?

    It was a lot of fun! I think somewhere near 100 people, more or less were there. No speaker for any TED talk (even the big annual TED event) is paid for their appearance.

    Victor,

    I do a talk on improvisation often for physician workshops and with every ward team early at the start of a rotation. I talk about performing "Clinical Jazz" at the patient's bedside which is all about using improvisation in a small ensemble. I parallel the form, function, social and technical skills being used in a quintet performance (I use a live version of Herbie Hancock's Cantalope Island - The one with Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Ron Carter, Tony Williams and Herbie) and demonstrate the improve communication techniques of naming a chart, harmony, soloing and keying on a leader. Then I bring in a couple of actual patient case situations and have the students and residents identify the same elements in the medical context. Immediately after that, we head of to round on new patients admitted to my inpatient service and do clinical jazz live and at bedside. It gets great response from all physicians I have had with me since I started doing this about 4 years ago.
