Jazz. Styles. and. History. To retell the story of the development of jazz is not an
aim of this book, partly because the job has already been done thoroughly
elsewhere.' But the character of the music, and the manner of its change, are
inextricable from the historical circumstances in which it has been practised.
Again, it is necessary to be aware of the simplification that is implied by telling the
story of a single entity, 'jazz'. What is, and what is not, part of the history again
raises issues ...

In the world of Standard Time, jazz stands above the marketplace. Sophistication,
elegance, and, most important, artistic purity distinguish this genre from mere
popular music.39 Recall the fact that the standards on the Marsalis recording
originated in Tin Pan Alley — the Jewish-dominated home of American popular
music throughout much of this century — yet the liner notes never broach this
lineage.40 In an interesting twist, Standard Time seems to tell a story of jazz not

Exactly what is jazz harmony? That's a good question. I really just don't know,
because a lot of the harmony is European. A lot of the harmony that we use in
modern jazz is definitely from European sources. I think early jazz harmony, was
probably to the best of my knowledge Dixieland music or early blues and swing
music, which was simpler. It didn't involve that much move— ment of harmony. It
was maybe—as far as the chords to a particular song went, maybe there was
only three ...

Recording Merchandisers (NARM), and many of his fans, Kenny G is a jazz
musician, and so are the other smooth jazz artists. This immediately brings to
light the question of authority. Who has the right and ability to judge? In popular
cultures, Simon Frith points out, "this isn't necessarily a problem — one could
define popular culture as that cultural sector in which all participants claim
authority to pass judgement ... in practice though, there are people who do claim
that their superior ...

Jazz is an art form and it expresses a Negroid point of view about life in the 20th
century. It is the most modern and profound expression of the way Black people
look at the world. It is not like what Black people did in sports, where they
reinterpreted the way the games could be played, bringing new dimensions to
competitive expression in boxing, basketball, and so forth. Jazz is something
Negroes invented and it said the most profound things not only about us and the
way we look at ...

Sixty Years on the Jazz Scene Nat Hentoff. What jazz leader would refuse? Mr.
Webster, a large, imposing, sometimes bristling man, could swing a military band
—as he proved in his years with the nonbelligerent Duke Ellington. But on
ballads he could be as tender as the memory of a first love, as he also
demonstrated with Duke. Mr. Webster gave me a lifetime credo when i was quite
young. Sitting with me between sets at a jazz club in Boston, he said—after vainly
trying to get a local ...
