Summary "Based on interviews, conversations, and observations during extensive field research, Jazz in Contemporary China: Shifting Sounds, Rising Scenes focuses on contemporary Chinese jazz developments, activities and scenes. It negotiates socio-political, cultural and spatial phenomena associated with Chinese jazz, and provides new insights for understanding China's modern history, society, culture and music. It uniquely examines contemporary Chinese jazz from within, unveiling the insider's view perspective of musicians and individuals engaged in Chinese jazz happenings, thus revealing the way this music generates, as well as disseminates, practices of creativity and individuality in 21st century China"-- Provided by publisher.
