EmT7. Is jazz essentially a non-western music?
Revision as of 17:10, 4 April 2022 by Dr.davidcring
"The main fallacy inherent in all of these statements [concerning the myths of jazz Baker considers] lies with trying to impose European norms, standards, values, and criteria on an essentially non-western art form. Most of the writing about jazz has been from the perspective of what is valid within the parameters of Western aesthetics and traditions." (p. 7, emphasis in red not Baker's)
- Is this true?
