In questo articolo viene trattata, in via esclusiva, la struttura di un tipico arrangiamento jazz, fornendo indicazioni riguardanti, fondamentalmente, le metodologie di scrittura. Proponiamo, come modello, un semplice arrangiamento di “Giant Steps”, rinomata composizione di Coltrane, adatto ad una formazione di medie dimensioni. L’organico consiste di sette elementi in tutto: tromba, sassofoni contralto e tenore, trombone, pianoforte, contrabbasso, batteria. Le varie tecniche di arrangiamento, quali parallelismo diatonico e tonicizzazione, vengono in questa sede menzionate ma non discusse. Infatti, ci limiteremo a palesare, sezione per sezione, le strategie adoperate al fine d’ottenere il risultato desiderato. In this paper we exclusively discuss the structure of a typical jazz arrangement, providing some indications concerning, predominantly, the writing methodologies.

I am different. Am I different?

I am different. Am I different? Although the integration of children with intellectual disabilities is improving constantly, educational materials are still lacking for the youngest age groups with the aim to introduce the idea of intellectual disabilities, and to show them that some of their peers, even though different from what we call average, are still organic and valuable members of the community. With my comic, I hope to give parents a tool to start conversations with kindergarten-age children to sensitize them to the topic and to promote openness towards children with intellectual disabilities. This project is in it's early stage, but I hope to have the opportunity to dedicate entire books to the topic in the future.

This article is part of a series of short stories published in the Journal of Science, Humanities and Arts by the young author Zazie-Charlotte Pfeiffer, who received the "Jean-Paul“ Award in 2013 and the "Tom Sawyer" Award in 2012 for her work. She already published two short stories in JOSHA: "Prom Night" (published in Volume 4, Issue 1/English) and "Nachts" (published in Volume 4, Issue 2/German). The following story is written in English. Special thanks to Theodora Pfeiffer for supporting this publication by proof-reading! What are we afraid of? Is it the idea of leaving our usual paths? Is it uncertainty or simply the acceptance that we can never have complete control over everything? Clara lives between the worlds of acceptance, uncertainty, and control without being part of any of them. In this special night, she meets someone from another world. Someone who can fly like a bird. Someone who is brave enough to dream. Someone who makes her feel less alone. Someone special...

In questo articolo vengono discusse, in via praticamente esclusiva, le tecniche d’improvvisazione relative agli Accordi di Settima di Quarta Specie. Il lettore, cui di fatto non è richiesto il possesso d’alcun background di carattere jazzistico, è subito portato ad esprimersi, per così dire, adoperando il Linguaggio Be-Bop. Il metodo è semplice e intuitivo. Si parte dalla presentazione d’una “Frase Fondamentale”, costruita sulla Triade Maggiore, dalla quale vengono istantaneamente dedotte ulteriori proposizioni. Le frasi così ottenute vengono successivamente modificate, effettuando semplici “tagli” ovvero aggiungendo nuove “parole”, e tra di loro variamente combinate. In aggiunta, è brevemente trattata la “Tonicizzazione”, ed esaminata la compatibilità tra le frasi in questa sede dedotte e il cosiddetto “Jazz Turnaround”. This article represents a translated and revised version of the paper "The Art of Improvising: the Be-Bop Language and the Major Seventh Chords".
