9780226125190: School for Cool: The Academic Jazz Program and the Paradox of Institutionalized Creativity
Review:

"School for Cool is one of the most creative, comprehensive, epistemologically and substantively provocative, and just generally fascinating books I've read in recent years. Wilf provides a remarkably attentive and wide-reaching account of cultural production, reproduction, and transformation." (Donald Brenneis, University of California, Santa Cruz)"

From the Publisher:

Jazz was born on the streets, grew up in clubs, and will die - so some fear - at the university. Facing dwindling commercial demand and the gradual disappearance of venues, many aspiring jazz musicians today learn their craft, and find their careers, in one of the many academic programs that now offer jazz degrees. School for Cool is their story. Going inside the halls of two of the most prestigious jazz schools around-at the Berklee School of Music in Boston and the New School in New York - Eitan Y. Wilf tackles a formidable question at the heart of jazz today: can creativity survive institutionalization? Few art forms epitomize the anti-institutional image more than jazz, but it's precisely at the academy that jazz is now flourishing. This shift has introduced numerous challenges and contradictions to the music's practitioners. Solos are transcribed, technique is standardized, and the whole endeavor is plastered with the label "high art" - a far cry from its freewheeling days. Wilf shows how students, educators, and administrators have attempted to meet these challenges with an inventive spirit and a robust drive to preserve - and foster - what they consider to be jazz's central attributes: its charisma and unexpectedness. He also highlights the unintended consequences of their efforts to do so. Ultimately he argues that the gap between creative practice and institutionalized schooling, although real, is often the product of our efforts to close it.

Descripción University Of Chicago Press, 2014. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Swingin' in the Iron Cage explores the fundamental tension at the core of jazz culture. To learn how to play jazz means pitting creative agency and improvisation against the rational institutionalization and routinization of training. Indeed, institutionalized art education in general has long been considered a contradiction in terms by many artists and critics. Swingin' in the Iron Cage , then, explores these tensions as they play out in two premiere collegiate jazz programs - at the Berklee School of Music in Boston and the New School in New York City. Tracing the trajectories of neophyte artists from the moment of their enrollment to their integration in the professional jazz scene, the book unravels the myths around the paradoxical combination of creativity and institutionalized schooling and explains why and how jazz has been successful at reinventing itself despite the relocation of jazz training from the club to the classroom. Swingin' in the Iron Cage gives a provocative insider's look at how modern artists negotiate the imperative to be creative in institutional settings.
