Synopsis

Annual Review of Jazz Studies 8: 1996 Special Edition on Jazz Theory by Henry Martin

Now in paperback! Showcases professional work in the arena of jazz theory. Among the contributors are scholars of jazz theory as well as musicians, including four of the founding members of the jazz section of the Society for Music Theory. The articles offer a close analysis of a wide variety of jazz styles and span the years from the 1920s to the 1960s. Feature articles include analyses of the music of Johnny Dodds, Charlie Parker, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane, an overview of jazz theory that examines its history and purpose, a discussion of linear intervallic patterns in the jazz repertory, and a review of scientific analyses of jazz microrhythms. Of great interest to jazz theorists, performers, educators and critics.

Reviews

Martin's approach here as editor is an intelligent one; the articles tend to embrace several levels of theory at once, and the serious listener, player, or student should find this volume worthwhile. Cadence Magazine
