Este livro foi conceituado para ilustrar, através de estudos de casos comparativos, o amplo desenvolvimento harmônico, melódico, rítmico e orquestral, assim como as variações estruturais dos arranjos de jazz, desde os anos 20 até os dias de hoje. O livro é baseado em 35 arranjos de gênios como: Don Redman, Fletcher Henderson, Benny Carter, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Gil Evans, Thad Jones, Bill Holman, Bob Brookmeyer, e Clare Fischer.
"Changes Over Time: The Evolution of Jazz Arranging" is conceived to illustrate, through comparative case studies, the dramatic development of rhythmic, melodic, harmonic, orchestrational, and structural variation in jazz arranging from the 1920s to the present. A broad category of compositions that have each inspired numerous jazz arrangements was established, and the arrangements associated with each of the original works were examined to determine the level of quality, the span of jazz history represented, and the number of renditions created by historically significant jazz arrangers, including Don Redman, Fletcher Henderson, Benny Carter, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Gil Evans, Thad Jones, Bill Holman, Bob Brookmeyer, and Clare Fischer.
The case studies were narrowed to 35 arrangements of three classic jazz compositions and one American popular standard song:
Jelly Roll Morton's "King Porter Stomp"
Don Redman's "Chant of the Weed",
Gerald Marks' and Seymour Simon's "All of Me"
Billy Strayhorn's "Take The ´A´ Train"
Scores and/or parts representing nine decades were supplied by living arrangers, borrowed from collections, reconstructed from sketches, or transcribed from recordings. Four contemporary masters were ultimately commissioned to create new arrangements of four selected compositions.
