Abstract (summary)

Three prominent jazz trumpeters, who cite visual experiences of colors, shapes, contours, or transcription - elements not directly related to the aural information typically described in the improvisational process - were selected and interviewed for this study. Each subject was asked to describe their conscious processes and visual experiences while improvising, with emphasis on personal development, content and musical intent. Additionally, each subject selected a recorded improvised solo to be analyzed and discussed, comparing traditional musical analytical techniques to their corresponding visual experiences. Pedagogical elements related to jazz education and personal practice were also included.
