* Creator/RayCharles found himself with time to fill at the end of a 1958 performance and told his band and the Raelettes "Listen, I'm going to fool around and y'all just follow me." The result was "What'd I Say," which became Ray's first gold record after he took it into the studio in 1959.

* EvelynEvelyn: The "Ask Evelyn Evelyn" bit of the stage show. The sisters give their answers one word at a time, trying to form a full sentence by following up on each other's words... which mostly involves Amanda and Jason trying to think of words that the other could not possibly follow up on.

Bach was a genius improviser, able to improvise three-part fugues, and once did so on command for Frederick the Great, but while a few of his fugues might be written-out improvisations, most of them were through-composed.

Added DiffLines:

* Free improvisation is ''entirely'' improvised music, typically played by smaller ensembles and soloists. Bigger ensembles are capable of free improvisation, but the form relies very much on the quality of every musician's attention to what's going on, and after a certain point it becomes difficult-to-impossible to sift out what's happening, so large ensembles typically use a set of rules to determine who should play what and when (e.g. 'If there is another musician playing the same instrument as you, don't play when they're playing', or conversely, 'only one section at a time should play', etc.) The challenge is usually to avoid every improvisation having the same form: starting very quiet, working up to a big climax and then being quieter again. It requires players to be able to turn on a dime, hear what others are doing and respond appropriately, have an endless number of ideas and the greatest possible technical command of the instrument, and above all the willingness to not play anything at all if that's what's needed. Some rock bands have done it successfully, notably Music/HenryCow and Music/KingCrimson; rock bands who do this unsuccessfully generally end up merely jamming, which isn't the same thing.

* All the dialog from ''HomeMovies'' was done this way to make it sound like 3 kids talking in real life. Even the scripts only had small notes on them and jokes to fall back on if the voice actors couldn't think of anything to say.

* Jimmy Smits supposedly left ''NYPDBlue'' because David Milch insisted on the actors often improvising scenes without a script at all.



* Improvisation happens a lot in the music world, especially jazz. Improvisations in the world of jazz music are varied, depending on the subgenre. Swing musicians usually just "riffed" on the melody, while the bebop musicians played extended solos on the chord changes. Miles Davis edited hours of recordings of his musicians loose improvisations to create "Bitches Brew". Ornette Coleman pioneered free jazz, improvisation using no chord changes at all. And the genre continues...

* Improvisation happens a lot in the This is common practice throughout music world, especially jazz. where you don't have multiple musicians playing in unison. The only forms where you will NEVER see it are in things like highly-composed works (like most classical pieces), show music (where cues must be timed precisely with live action) and choral pieces (where singers often rely on instrumental cues for their parts).

* Music/{{Genesis}} had, by 1983 especially, recorded their albums "clean slate" (i.e.: no pre-written material) simply by jamming and improvising in their private studio, often using minimal sketched ideas or riffs by one of the band members (guitarist/bassist Mke Rutherford [[WordOfGod once claimed in a TV documentary]] he sometimes isn't even told what key to play in), collecting the best ideas from the jams to make songs from. [[JustifiedTrope Apparently this was done as]] the bandmembers felt most of the magic from previous albums came from group-written jams, and they wanted to maintain a group dynamic and collective spirit.

* {{Music/Can}}'s albums were built almost entirely from improvisation, and edited together into somewhat coherent songs after the fact. When Damo Suzuki was the lead vocalist, he often just made up his lyrics on the spot.
