Pressestimmen

""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. At the core of it lies the complex nexus of improvisation, aesthetic traditions and their emergent reworkings, institutional practice, and the simultaneous socialization of young jazz performers into canon and creativity. In considering this array of subjects, Wilf provides a remarkably attentive and wide-reaching account of cultural production, reproduction, and transformation."--Donald Brenneis, University of California, Santa Cruz

""School for Cool" is a very original book within a new tradition of critical jazz studies that examines the contemporary scene of jazz education and socialization from the point of view of the tradition's struggle for self-preservation, legitimization, and competition in the music industry. Wilf invites us to rethink the art of improvisation and convincingly argues that one cannot understand the paradoxes of jazz higher education unless one understands the changes in the club scenes and the types of young people who are, today, attracted to jazz as a profession."--Alessandro Duranti, University of California, Los Angeles

Kurzbeschreibung

Jazz was born on the streets, grew up in the 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 Berklee College of Music in Boston and the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music 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 where 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, the gap between creative practice and institutionalized schooling, although real, is often the product of our efforts to close it.

Tiresome and clumsy writing style at times, still offers a moderately interesting voyeristic insight into jazz education.
This topic, and many others, are better covered in the George E. Lewis masterpiece "A power stronger than itself,"
though not from an anthropological standpoint. It is just my humble opinion, and I speak as a student of jazz music
who finds certain practices and methods in jazz education questionable and some downright flawed.

4.0 von 5 Sternen ... if you want to get a job and be like everybody else 15. April 2017
Von Ernest - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The late drummer Max Roach argued…we wouldn’t have the Duke Ellingtons and Charlie Parkers if we had gone to the universities and got doctorates because our minds would have been locked into something else…Academia is okay if you want to get a job and be like everybody else. But if you want to go outside and above all that and be like Charlie Parker , Bud Powell, Chick Webb, and these people, academia can’t teach you. (Monson 2007,285).
This is within the Introduction to this book. It is accurate and true. I had the pleasure of studying and performing with Prof. Roach at UMass./Amherst.
This conflict within Academia persists.
School for Cool: The Academic Jazz Program and the Paradox of Institutionalized Creativity- by Eitan Y. Wilf (Author), is a wonderful and
excellent, well researched publication.
The research has shown that a major change took place within Music Training and Education during this period beginning in the late 1960"s.
Mr. Roach and Mr. Archie Shepp replicated the experience of Improvisation and Performance in their workshops and live concerts outside the University as best they could. Many of us benefitted from this. Bassist, Avery Sharpe and and Drummer, John Betsch, among others.
We were on the cusp, historically, of this change within Music Culture in the United States.
My respect and hat goes toward many living musicians who went through other schools. Jack Walrath. the School of Mingus. Sonny Fortune, the School of Miles, Gary Bartz, Bill Pierce, the School of Blakey, Ravi Coltrane, the School of Coltrane, Joshua Redman, the School of Dewey Redman, and et al.
A hope would be that students will seek these types of schools out, in addition to academia.
Peace

Thanks to all of them and the others still around. A hope would be that new students will follow in their steed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for all jazz educators and administrators 14. August 2015
Von Hal Galper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A well-written indictment of contemporary jazz education. However, I felt the book suffered from a lack of comparison with other non-academic successful methods of teaching music: the master-student relationship, the Suzuki Method, and other long accepted teaching formats.

A must read for all jazz educators and administrator's.
