Music report

 
Sometime during the semester, you will have to attend a live performance of jazz and write a short paper about it.  Use the links below or other resources to find a jazz (or blues) concert to attend.  You cannot “attend” a video of a performance.  You must go to a LIVE performance.  Then write a report about what you saw and heard.  This report should be a minimum of 500 words long and should include the following:
1.  a description of the venue (night club, cafe, concert hall, etc.)
2.  a description of the band (the types of instruments/singers)
3.  descriptions of the music—This is the most important part!
Pay attention to the music, and take note of things that you find interesting.  You can organize your paper in any way that you’d like, but here are some ideas for things that you could include.  
-Describe the overall style–is it similar in any way to any of the styles we have studied or any other music that you have heard?
-Point out any musical techniques that you recognize from our discussions in class (improvisation, blues-like melodies, syncopation, call and response, etc.)
-Describe on of the pieces that was played: who played the melody, who played improvised solos., and how did the piece end?
-Point out any aspects of the performance that you either liked or didn’t particularly like.  Was there anything that you found surprising or unusual?
