Jazz Theory Bibliography

This database of scholarship in jazz theory was created by merging bibliographies compiled by Henry Martin and J. Kent Williams. Initial merging and editing was done in Spring 2007 by Mark David Shoun and supported by a grant from the Music Research Institute of the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. The current implementation was migrated to Carleton University in October 2018 by the developer at Carleton’s School for Studies in Art and Culture, from the version created by Matthew Libera, Performing Arts Technology Consultant, UNCG School of Music, Theatre and Dance.

The database will be maintained and updated periodically. Please send suggestions for additions and corrections using the subject header "Jazz Theory Bibliography" to the editor, Dr. James McGowan <james.mcgowan@carleton.ca>, Professor and Supervisor of Performance Studies, Carleton University.
