Is Jazz African-American Classical Music?
Austerlitz, “Jazz Styles”
“America’s Classical Music”
“The Blues as Dance Music”
“Jazz and the White Critic”
Syllabus, Page 2 (“jazz doesnt exist”)
Two pages. First, explicate and compare the perspectives expressed by Taylor, Murray, Baraka, and in the syllabus. Are jazz and blues American? Are they African-American? Classical? Also feel free to refer to listening or other material covered in the recorded lectures. Then let me know: what you think about this issue?
