Just see this video of a Paul Simon concert in Toronto, it has everything of the power of musicthinking: entertainment, spontaneity, participation, emotion and uniqueness.
Paul Simon fan gets invited up on stage to sing Duncan when she yelled out that she learned to play guitar with this song….a thrill of a lifetime!!

Here is another one this time with Dave Brubeck
During a visit to Moscow in the 80’s, Dave Brubeck met the faculty and students in Moscow Conservatory. While he was improvising on a “Ei, uhnem”, a Russian folk song, a young man downstage stood up to play Stéphane Grappelli-style violin jazz.
