Dizzy once told this pianist in Florida, “Find yourself a rhythm and hang some notes on it.” He would say that he thinks rhythm when he improvises and simply puts notes to it. These notes can emanate from patterns, as mentioned earlier, or from scales, modes, arpeggios, runs etc. Of course, one must consider the source of the rhythm, as just any rhythm will not suffice in the playing of jazz. … I recall Dizzy, in a conversation we had about this, using the term “The melodization of rhythm.”
