Much has been written about the jazz language or the jazz vocabulary. Linguistic references are sensible and proper because, just as we speak in words and phrases derived from the alphabet, so do we improvise jazz in musical phrases derived from notes. In speech, choosing the right words is essential to expressing ourselves properly and making a statement. Likewise, choosing the right notes is essential to properly expressing ourselves and making a musical statement.
