Global Music and Jazz

Jazz music developed in America from the combining of different musical influences, which came about as a result of the numerous cultures that played a part in the development of the country. As the music grew, Jazz continued to incorporate musical elements from other styles of music, including world music influences. Dizzy Gillespie collaborated with Cuban congero Chano Pozo to explore new sounds in Jazz. In the 1960’s the Brazilian music style of Bossa Nova became a popular new sound in Jazz.

Today many international musical influences can be heard in modern Jazz music.

Assignment:

Research and find an artist or group that is combining an international music with jazz to create a new sound. Limit your research to music from the last 10 years. Pick a culture or country whose music you would be interested in learning about and see if you can find an artist or group who is combining that music with Jazz music to create a new Jazz sound. BE SURE YOU FIND AN ARTIST OR GROUP THAT IS COMBINING AN INTERNATIONAL MUSIC AND JAZZ, TO CREATE A NEW JAZZ SOUND. There are a number of examples of non-jazz artists using international music in their folk music, rock music, hip hop etc.., so be sure your choice of artist/group is a JAZZ artist.

Example: a search for “Traditional Japanese music and Jazz” produced a large number of entries, and some were useful in suggesting some artists that are combining the 2 styles of music to create a new Jazz based music.

Once you find an artist you are interested in, listen to the musical examples and read about the artist and their concepts for combining Jazz and the international music they specialize in.

Requirements:

  1. Write a 1000-1500 word paper which describes the artist/group and their music. The paper should be well written, following general rules and formatting for a Research Paper (see suggested format below). Citations should be in MLA or APA format.
  2. Include a description of the artist/groups concepts/ideas for combining the international music with Jazz
  3. Include your own description of what you hear in the music.
  4. Include a description of the artist/groups, what they are known for and other relevant projects/recordings they have produced. Include a selected discography.

    1. Date released
    2. Record label
    3. Musicians on the recording
    4. How readers can find this music (purchase, listen, etc)

You will be graded on:

  1. The inclusion of all of the issues listed above in your paper.
  2. Evidence of research into the artist and music. References to your other research should be included.
  3. Your description of the music.
    1. How the combination of the particular Global music and Jazz presented by the artist/group works – what elements of each style of music are heard

      1. pick some specific moments in the performance that you can identify, describe and comment on the way the music moves you.

      1. This is a LARGE part of the Draft-Final paper process, to create a Final Paper that is well written and interesting to the reader.

Use of copied materials:

This assignment uses the Turnitin tool, which assesses the materials in the paper and issues a Similarity Report of any materials that are copied from existing sources. You need to be sure that any copied materials are properly cited, in quotations, etc.. You can resubmit the Draft and Final paper to assure that you have viewed the Similarity Report and rewritten your paper to make sure there are no copied materials that are not properly cited in your final submissions. The university takes plagiarism very seriously (see syllabus), so be SURE your paper does not include copied materials that are not cited or quoted in your writing.

Note: Including LARGE amounts of quoted materials in the body of your paper (to build up word count) will not be viewed favorably in the grading of the paper. This writing assignment is designed for you to write about music, using your own words and descriptions. You need to include cited information about the artist/group and recordings, but the body of the paper that includes your descriptions of the music and concepts should be your own words, organized for this paper, not copied descriptions from research sources. That being said, important quotes from the artist/group or reviews that help make your points are encouraged. How and where you place these quotes in your paper can be very effective in the creation of an interesting and well written paper.
