Analogies and Jazz Music

I have always had a fondness for analogies.   To me a good analogy allows for an easier connection to or understanding of something that on the surface you may not be familiar with.  I find myself using analogies with students all the time, the are so many great analogies which apply to learning an instrument and learning jazz music and improvisation (jazz music as a language for example). Occasionally I may make one that's a bit far fetched, but I've seen how generally with my students I can witness an "ah ha" moment with the aid of a good analogy.   With a blog post today on the similarities between the improvising musician and a tennis player I am beginning a series of posts on some of my favorite analogies.  Let me know what you think, or what are some of your favorites?

    Jazz music is so unique to me. A song is never sang the same way even by the same singer. It is so fluid that I get excited how a particular song would be interpreted by the singer. I listen to jazz all the time. Even when I am undertaking custom paper writing service reviews. It helps me keep focused.
