Around the Internet: Jazz Innovations from an Economist’s Perspective

Jul 16, 2012

Saxophonist Steve Newsome writes a blog "created to reach out to fellow sax players and musicians committed to sharing ideas about the soprano saxophone." Sounds like a good idea to me.

A recent posting is great reading, so I thought I would share the link with you. Entitled "Jazz Innovations from an Economist’s Perspective", it uses Chicago University economist David Galenson's article "Old Masters and Young Geniuses: The Two Life Cycles of Human Creativity," to define two types of innovators: the experimental and the conceptual. Newsome applies this to jazz musicians, comparing visual artists like Picasso and Cezanne with Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. Well worth a read.
