Duncan Heining [+]
Duncan Heining has been writing about jazz, improvised music and 20th century composition since 1996. He has written for Avant Magazine, Record Collector, The Independent and The Independent On Sunday. His main outlets currently are Jazzwise, Jazz UK and the All About Jazz website. In 2010, Scarecrow Press published his biography of African-American composer and musical theorist George Russell, George Russell - An American Composer.
This chapter continues to examine the connections between British jazz in the sixties and wider political events and concerns. However, it focuses on the nature of the music itself, its aesthetic and ethical underpinnings and its position within the context of a capitalist market economy.
