(Boston) Jazz Then & Now
Compare composers/musicians/compositions within and across periods or genres in jazz history:
* Listen to original music from an earlier period in jazz history and compare it with attempts by later admirers to revive or preserve that genre, eg Keith Jarrett.
* Choose one jazz musician who is known for experimenting with a range of styles. Listen to different albums by that one jazz musician and compare the various styles that you hear. Be sure to listen to the music and form your own judgments before you look at background sources, such as descriptions of the music, or argument sources. (Herbie Hancock)
