Listen to a Classic Jazz Album, and write about it. Download the Classic Jazz Albums list to choose an album, or, you may choose another album with the instructor’s approval. Your paper should cover the history of the album, biographical information on all of the musicians on the album, and include information about the location of the recording, the label and the engineer. Then cover the music on the album track by track. Discuss topics such as style, genre, instrumentation, and improvisation. Your paper should be around four pages long, which is about 1000 words.
Your bibliography should be in MLA format, and should include the actual album that you listened to. Please do not use YouTube as a source for your paper. Citations for sound recording and websites are different than they for books. Here is an example of a citation for a sound recording: Beethoven, Ludwig van. The 9 Symphonies. Perf. NBC Symphony Orchestra. Cond. Arturo Toscanini. RCA, 2003. CD. To make it easier on yourself, you might want to try an MLA citation generator. You just fill in the info, and the generator creates a bibliographic citation for you! Originality Check is enabled for this assignment. It automatically checks the internet for text that has been cut and pasted from other sources. Papers with significant amounts of copied material will lose significant points. Anything that is cut and pasted into your paper should be clearly identified as a direct quote.
