The Jazz Experience

In The Jazz Experience, Sawyer shares the stage with a jazz trio. Sawyer introduces each of the trio’s songs, describing the special balance of planning and improvisation that results in effective creativity. Sawyer then poses provocative questions for the musicians, drawing out their unconscious inspiration and their conscious goals and thoughts. This compelling experience shows how all of us can become more collaborative and more creative.
