Making the Scene

University of California Press

This chapter follows many of the same players into a very different situation, the now-defunct Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, directed by Jon Faddis. Comparing the leadership in this band with the more cooperatively run VJO, as well as taking a glimpse back at the leadership styles established by Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, yields insights into different approaches to musical direction.

Keywords:   Jon Faddis, jazz band, Carnegie Hall, musical direction, Thad Jones, Mel Lewis, VJO
