(p.155) Chapter 7 In the Studio and on Stage
Blowin’ the Blues Away

Travis A. Jackson

University of California Press

The framings discussed in the previous chapters foreground the importance of attending to the details of a specific musical event via its nesting in successive frames—a scene, a blues aesthetic, ritual, space, time, tune, and form. They emphasize, as well, relating that single event to others and noting how each event is constituted by references and responses to others displaced in time and space. Building on those ideas, this chapter focuses on the ways that the work of different actors and institutions shapes musical events in recording studios or clubs. It analyzes three studio recordings and three live performances to illustrate the efficacy of seeing jazz through the lenses of a blues aesthetic and ritualization.

Keywords:   musical events, recording studios, clubs, live performance, jazz, blues aesthetic, ritualization
