    I’ve just been watching some of the analysis and improv of “the girl from Ipanema” – it’s very cool, but made me wonder…

    Do experts like Jobim (or Dr John or whoever) compose their songs based on solid musical knowledge, or do they just intuitively “feel” and experiment until it sounds “right”?

    Just curious; probably no one answer is correct but still thought I’d ask ?

    What’d ya think?
