In hip jazz clubs, in concerts, and on recent recordings, today's dominant "trend" seems to be extreme eclecticism: "jazz" approaches mashed up with a host of musics other-than-jazz, or emphasizing personal stylistic idiosyncrasies over adherence to stylistic norms. For over three decades, "New Jazz Studies" has challenged notions of jazz as unified history; if "the past explains the present," though, has jazz history missed something? This jazz history course takes eclecticism as a historiographical theme in seeking to understand how today's musicians tug at the seams confining "jazz."

When Offered Spring.
