Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Although it will be of primary interest to those who are engaged in composition themselves, [this] book is also recommended for readers who may wish to gain further insight into just what makes jazz composition so different from traditional approaches."—Malcolm Bessom, The Music Magazine

Synopsis:

This text, the first of its kind, deals with some of the problems to be faced. It discusses the new trend of musical thought that jazz has brought about--the new combinations of instruments, a different harmonic and melodic language, a new and an intriguing approach to ensemble writing.
