TACET #2 – Experimentation in question‏

Call for submissions
TACET: Experimental Music Review #2
Experimentation In Question

Edited by Janne Mäkelä

Since its arrival on the public scene in the early 20th century, jazz has been characterised by a remarkable ability to cross musical, social and cultural borderlines. In terms of musical style and character, jazz has often crossed genre categories and undergone radical changes. In terms of geographical and cultural boundaries, one of the most notable developments in jazz has been the internationalisation of its sound. Continue reading “The Jazz Chameleon‏”
