(p.239) Part VII The Neo-Con Game
Jazz in Search of Itself

Larry Kart

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on musical pieces that revolve around the advent in 1980 of trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis and the several sorts of jazz neoconservatism or revivalism that he and his associates proposed at that time: this meant a return to a kind of classicized version of the Miles Davis Quintet of the mid-1960s and a series of visits to chosen styles of the jazz past. The difference of the so-called Wyntonian era from the New Orleans Revival and Marsalis's arrival on the scene is that never before had a return to selected aspects of the jazz past been presented—and, to a remarkable degree, accepted—as an event of central aesthetic importance. A cut-and-paste, mix-and-match attitude toward the jazz past has been one result of this revisiting of jazz past.

Keywords:   jazz neoconservatism, revivalism, Wynton Marsalis, Miles Davis Quintet, jazz past
