(p.70) Chapter 4 The New York Jazz Scene in the 1990s
Blowin’ the Blues Away

Travis A. Jackson

University of California Press

This chapter examines the contours of the New York jazz scene in the 1990s. Building on the previous discussions of history, memory, race, culture, and practices, on one hand, and spatiality, on the other, it offers as a corrective a focus not only on the people moving through and populating the scene, but also on the spaces and institutions they manipulate (and that manipulate them) in the process of making jazz. Central here are the relationships between all involved as the scene changes and develops, even in the course of one decade. The chapter sketches the major elements of the jazz scene in and since the 1990s, and considers the interaction of those differing elements to show how, together, they have as much impact on the making of jazz as ready-made notions of musical or historical progress.
