THE RELATIONSHIP OF JAZZ TO WESTERN CLASSICAL

THE RELATIONSHIP OF JAZZ TO WESTERN CLASSICAL MUSIC A TWO­WAY CONNECTION Chapter 17 The Relationship of Jazz to Western Classical Music 1 17 While many have argued that there has never been a close relationship between jazz and Western art music, a case can be made that certain relationships have always existed between these two divergent styles of music. It is the very existence of these relationships that has in many ways helped to enable jazz to move forward, always pushing earlier boundaries, rejecting stereotypes, and redefining itself. Jazz, like most art forms, is an experiment, a workshop producing music not always bound by traditional rules and accepted practices. Sincerity, practicality, freshness, and spontaneity have been its greatest virtues and the only rule often followed has been whether it sounds good. Racial prejudices often were responsible for the early boundaries between jazz and European art music. It was virtually impossible for a black musician to be accepted into an established symphony orchestra or opera company, so by virtue of necessity, African Americans had to create their own music; but musicians on both sides of the imaginary boundary between classical music and jazz, regardless of color, have always valued experimentation and the importance to their art of raising new questions. Perhaps it was this urgent need to experiment that helped to eventually draw black and white musicians together in a quest for new ways to present their music. It is only logical then that there should be common ground between these seemingly disparate musicians. A chronological examination of the bond between these two musical styles will illustrate this point.
