Summary
  • "French concert music and jazz often enjoyed a special creative exchange across the period 1900-1965. French modernist composers were particularly receptive to early African-American jazz during the interwar years, and American jazz musicians, especially those concerned with modal jazz in the 1950s and early 1960s, exhibited a distinct affinity with French musical impressionism. But despite a general, if contested, interest in the cultural interplay of classical music and jazz, few writers have probed the specific French music-jazz relationship in depth. In this book, Deborah Mawer sets such musical interplay within its historical-cultural and critical-analytical contexts, offering a detailed yet accessible account of both French and American perspectives. Blending intertextuality with more precise borrowing techniques, Mawer presents case studies on the musical interactions of a wide range of composers and performers, including Debussy, Satie, Milhaud, Ravel, Jack Hylton, George Russell, Bill Evans and Dave Brubeck"--
  • "Orleans to New Orleans and back again ... The lure and influence of jazz upon composers of French modernist music was acknowledged by an article in The Musical Quarterly, published as early as 1935. Conversely, as Mervyn Cooke points out, the practice of jazz improvisers 'Jazzing-up classical music is as old as jazz itself', while for musicians like Dave Brubeck, 'Jazz has always been a hybrid music.'"--
