Jazz Presenters

(p.82) Chapter 4 Providing a Place and Time

Thomas H. Greenland

University of Illinois Press

This chapter examines the role of jazz presenters in connecting artists and audiences in the here and now of improvised performances. It first provides an overview of the business of live jazz performances that take place in concert halls and clubs and in less formal performance spaces, along with the challenges faced by presenters running their venues as for-profit businesses. It then analyzes the attitudes and activities of venue operators and concert producers in the context of their professional endeavors and particularly in their interactions with musicians and fans. It also considers the presenters' relationship with jazz musicians and audiences and shows that they are part of the unseen scene whose role in providing a place and time is vital to collective expressions of music.

Keywords:   jazz presenters, live jazz performance, concert halls, venue operators, concert producers, jazz musicians, jazz audiences, unseen scene, jazz
