Abstract

Jazz is often at its best when stretched to incorporate elements that might at first seem foreign or even suspect. It is now clear that computers, critical doubts notwithstanding, provide an important way to extend jazz improvisation and compositional resources. This article discusses how the author's roots in the jazz tradition inform his work using saxophone and computer-controlled electronics. He examines two such works, which draw on diverse traditions and make use of computers to allow jazz to speak in new and different tongues.
