Description: Jazz is by nature an improvisatory art form, and that holds true for the way its practitioners have pursued educations as well as on-the-spot compositions. From its roots in New Orleans, mixing African folk rhythms with Western harmonies to current jazz ensembles taking on Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring," the music and its pioneers have largely decided on their own curriculum, as they scrambled for new tricks and voices to add to the vibrant and quickly-growing musical language. A true believer in the free assimilation of styles, Brackeen spent the '90s churning out a treasure trove of recordings inspired by a love of Brazilian music that she had just developed, leading to a collaboration with Ivo Perelman on an acclaimed tribute to Heitor Villa-Lobos called Man oj the Forest.
