The value of randomness in teaching and practicing improvisation

My main objective objective is to sift through different jazz methods with a focus on electric and double bass books that aim at teach the fundamentals of improvisations and make a selection of exercises that are often used or seem the most relevant to teaching how to improvise. I’ll also rely on creating my own exercises. The focus will be to see how an element of randomness can be beneficial to the students as well as well as my own practice. Can this be an interesting and fruitfull way to bridge the gap bewtween a playback machine

Over the years besides these instrument methods I collected different publications on jazz theory, harmony, composition and arranging(cf. resources).
