The article presents the author's views on playing through a "break," one of the challenging aspects of jazz improvisation. He defines break as a section of a tune where a single instrument improvises alone before the rest of the band starts playing again. He says that breaks can be in form of tempo or rubato. He says that for developing break skills, it is important to remember that jazz music developed out of a type of 2/4 beat.
