  • The African Origins of Jazz
    The African Origins of Jazz

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    In his brilliant 1968 analytical book on jazz, Early Jazz: Its Roots and Musical Development (Oxford University Press) author Gunther Schuller makes a very strong case for jazz's African origins, writing that "the analytic study in this chapter [Chapter 1, pages 3-62] shows that every musical element - rhythm, harmony, melody, timbre, and the basic forms of jazz - is essentially African in background and derivation." [...]Dizzy Gillespie's and Charlie Parker's famous recording of Shaw 'Nuff even ends with the tritone pitch, the most unstable pitch of all.) Open Tone and Natural Quality Important characteristics of jazz vocal and instrumental performance, "traceable directly to African singing and indirectly to African speech and language" - according to Schuller - are an open tone and natural quality, compared to the cultivated and trained sound of singers and instrumentalists in the European classical music tradition.

  • Joanne Brackeen: Learning from the Best
    Joanne Brackeen: Learning from the Best

    $6.95

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    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.

    Document Overview:
    In the aforementioned Elvin Jones style, Tain ornaments this basic ride cymbal and hi-hat pattern with eighth note triplets on the second and third part of the triplet beat and bass drum notes on the "ands" of the beats. Along with keeping track of the beat and form while listening to recordings such as this one, these rhythmic ideas can be practiced in group situations of various sizes, having one or more people take turns deviating from the original beat emphasis while the remaining members maintain it. Because you won't always have another individual or rhythm section at your disposal, the inverse of this idea can also be practiced with a metronome.
