✏The Contradictions of Jazz Book Summary : In The Contradictions of Jazz, Paul Rinzler takes a new approach to jazz aesthetics and theory by exploring four pairs of opposites present in jazz: individualism and interconnectedness, assertion and openness, freedom and responsibility, and creativity and tradition. By themselves, these eight values speak volumes about the meaning of jazz and its significance. Understanding how these opposites coexist in jazz leads to an exploration of the connections linking jazz with the experiential and existential, which contrast with the connections between composition and science. Rinzler explains the various concepts, including either/or and dialectic thinking, and then examines the pairs of opposites individually, describing their position and presence in jazz. He then demonstrates how the larger meaning of these contradictory opposites depends on ideas from the philosophies of phenomenology and existentialism. Rinzler considers the opposites inherent in the product and process of jazz, as well as mistakes and the challenge of perfection, presenting these values in light of the contradictions inherent in jazz. With a full bibliography and an index, The Contradictions of Jazz is a fascinating read for fans and scholars of jazz history and aesthetics.

Ornette Coleman announced his arrival on a plastic saxophone, changing the shape of jazz to come. The father of free jazz, Coleman believes in the art of the improvisers. Coleman champions the power of instruments, more than just a song, to create a spontaneous conversation in music that speaks of human feelings. To his critics, the unprecedented music of Ornette Coleman is nothing more than noise. But his many fans and awards testify to a career that, like his music, opens a caravan of dreams, ignoring boundaries in favor of a relentless celebration of creativity. Coleman’s is no snobby jazz. Throughout Coleman’s career, he championed a music played in the moment . . . a music that’s dancing in your head.
