Licks in the Literature of Jazz Research
by Gabriel Solis
Having completed a review of academic jazz literature from the 1970s to the present we have found considerable range of conception and use of the general topic of patterns in improvisation and a number of potentially testable hypotheses that our data set and analytical work might address. This paper offers a synthesis of key issues from that research, including: definitions and terminology to describe patterns; disciplinary frameworks in which the question of pattern is engaged; primary areas of debate; a note on the volume of datasets needed for this research; and testable hypotheses to consider. A substantial, but surely not comprehensive bibliography is attached.Download document
