Instructor(s): Travis Jackson

Prerequisites: Graduate standing. (3).

Course Homepage: https://coursetools.ummu.umich.edu/2001/fall/musicol/468/001.nsf

This course examines the constitution of the jazz scenes in New York City, Chicago, and other American cities throughout the twentieth century. Rather than concentrate strictly on the development of musical style, students enrolled in the course will examine the varied and changing roles of musicians, audiences, performance venues, the recording industry, legal structures, and various media in the production and development of jazz from the early 20th century to the present. For this reason, it is required that students complete MUS 456, History of Jazz, or the equivalent before enrolling in this course. Readings, drawn from scholarly and critical writings, will first explore the utility of the concept of a jazz "scene." Afterwards, attention will be focused on the interactions between different social agents and institutions and their importance for the creation and maintenance of scenes in the localities mentioned previously.
