Crossing the Street

Rethinking Jazz Education

(p.237) CHAPTER 11 Crossing the Street
Jazz/Not Jazz

David Ake

University of California Press

By nearly any measure, college-based music programs have largely replaced the proverbial “street” as the primary training grounds for young jazz musicians and have replaced urban nightclubs as the main professional homes for hundreds of jazz performers and composers. Even so, this far-reaching and seemingly inexorable move from clubs to schools remains ignored, marginalized, or denigrated throughout a wide range of jazz discourse. By examining some deeply held conceptions of both jazz history and music education, the chapter encourages readers to reconsider the roles schools now play in the development and dissemination of jazz.
