Jazz in its purest form is improvisational and hence maybe cannot be “written.” I propose the term ClassicalJazz for a form that blends jazz harmonies and rhythms with classical music elements such as dynamics, voice-leading, varied tone colors, and subtle natural accents, and elements of form, i.e. developing- variation technique. I love jazz and have played it all my life. I hope that this composition adds to your enjoyment of this great musical tradition.
