But is it? Weren't original Baroque pieces written with just the 'notes' and left to the player to interpret them, add dynamics, cadenzas etc.? I know you 'feel' jazz to play it, but jazz is easy once you know your music (i.e. all that 'boring' practice stuff), in the same way a language is easy once you know the grammar. Unless you're a genius, creativity is easy once you've mastered the basics. Or 'easier' I should say.
