Abstract or Summary
  • Due to the colloquial and adaptive nature of jazz, not much is known about the process of how a jazz piece is composed. Often, pieces that were not intended for jazz performance are adopted by jazz musicians; those who compose jazz are almost always performers, as they focus their explanation on the performance of their compositions rather than their compositional process. To better understand the jazz compositional process, the process of composing five pieces of music with the explicit intent of being performed by jazz musicians was documented. This documentation includes explanations of different tools or mechanisms used while composing, a content analysis of the jazz pieces and why they are well suited for jazz performance, and a description of the thought process used throughout. Composition is often a highly personalized process, so this documentation will offer a detailed description of one possible approach to jazz composition. If any of the five pieces composed become widely accepted as a jazz performance piece, this documentation could also offer extremely valuable insight into the composition of a jazz standard.
