UCLA MUSICOLOGY DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES
presents a talk by
University of Nevada, Reno
"Marginalizing the Center: Jazz Historiography and Jazz Education"
By nearly any measure, college-based jazz programs have not only
replaced the proverbial "street" as the primary training grounds for
young jazz musicians, but they've also largely replaced nightclubs as
the primary professional homes for hundreds of jazz performers. Yet
this seemingly inexorable move from clubs to schools remains ignored,
marginalized, or denigrated throughout a wide range of jazz discourse.
This talk explores how conservatory-style training for jazz musicians is
understood by and represented in the broader jazz community,
particularly among the music's historians and journalists, and argues
for how and why scholars might begin to rethink their positions on
institutionalized jazz education.
