since there are no live performances going on right now, we will have to do the next
best thing. Please find a LIVE recording of any prominent jazz musician, listen to the entire
album (or watch the entire video), and then write about your listening experience using the
terminology and historical context we have been discussing in class. Please follow these
guidelines when writing your paper.
Your paper will be submitted as an email attachment with “lastname104_paper” as the file name.
