Chamber jazz is a genre of jazz involving small, acoustic-based ensembles where group interplay is important. It is influenced aesthetically by musical neoclassicism and is often influenced by classical forms of Western music as well as non-Western music or culture. That stated, in many cases the influence is traditional Celtic music, Central European folk music, or Latin American music instead. The genre primarily began in Europe so significant neoclassical composers of Europe, like Igor Stravinsky, are important in it. The German ECM Records also played a role in it beginning in the late 1960s. It is also noted for using instruments not normally associated with jazz. For example, chamber jazz will make use of the oboe, mandolin, cymbalum, or the tabla.

dbo:abstract
  • Le jazz de chambre (en anglais : chamber jazz) est un courant du jazz apparu dans les années 1970, joué par de petits orchestres acoustiques et où les interactions de groupe sont primordiales. Le terme est parfois utilisé pour désigner la fusion entre la musique de chambre et le jazz : il se rapproche ainsi du courant third stream, mais sans l'aspect orchestral de ce dernier. En outre, le genre mobilise des instruments non associés au jazz, tels que le hautbois, la mandoline, les cymbales ou le tabla. Ses influences sont principalement la musique néo-classique et d'autres courants de la musique classique, mais aussi des éléments issus de traditions musicales et culturelles non-occidentales. Le jazz de chambre inclut ainsi des influences de la musique celtique, de la musique folklorique d'Europe centrale ou de la musique latine. Ces influences non-occidentales font que le jazz de chambre est parfois considéré comme appartenant aux musiques du monde. Certains considèrent en revanche que la fusion de la musique néo-classique avec le jazz classe le jazz de chambre dans le genre New age. Le genre apparaît en Europe et les compositeurs néo-classiques les plus importants, dont Igor Stravinsky, participent à son développement. À la fin des années 1960, le label de jazz allemand ECM Records participe à sa diffusion. Plusieurs albums ont également été produits par le label Windham Hill Records, fondé par un musicien de jazz de chambre. (fr)

At other times the fusion of neoclassical with jazz is deemed to be New Age and several albums of chamber jazz were released by Windham Hill Records. Windham Hill itself was co-founded by a musician linked to chamber jazz and was initially known for folk or world music. The term is also used, on occasion, to simply mean the fusion of chamber music with jazz. In this case it means something similar to third stream, but without the orchestral aspect third stream leans toward Jazz is not traditionally considered chamber music. According to the definition of Chamber music, which is defined by Chamber music America (CMA), chamber music are: "as works for small ensembles of 2-10 members, playing one to a part and generally performing without a conductor." Although the term Chamber jazz might not be accepted by all, there are still musicians play jazz in the tradition of Chamber music. There are also Chamber music groups that plays chamber music in a style that can be considered "jazz" Musician Ahmad Jamal performed "Chamber music of the new jazz", which can be a representative music piece as Chamber Jazz. During recent years, Chamber jazz is performed more and accepted by a larger audience. (en)
