Abstract

Paper explores the relationship between place and innovation in popular music, focusing on the bebop style of jazz. Bebop's creation in the 1940s and its early development was situated in a set of nested locales in New York City, then the undisputed jazz capital. Certain jazz clubs in Harlem (closed space) facilitated the experimentation that evolved the bebop style. However, the style's formalization and popularization happened in jazz clubs in midtown Manhattan (open space), first along 52nd Street and later on nearby stretched of Broadway. Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and many other bebop notables are discussed. - (SLD)
