»Groove is the essence of my music«. Wayne Krantz’ guitar playing from a practice-based perspective

Research output: Contributions to collected editions/worksChapterpeer-review


Wayne Krantz, an US-American fusion jazz guitar player, developed a very person-al style. Besides conscious reflection on his career and development, he came up with individual exercises. In the article, the stylistic development and the processes behind will be investigated and reflected from a practice-based artistic perspective. By doing so, the approach of practice-based and artistic research is realized with an autoethnographic approach, which appears to be a fruitful method, and presented with two individual but intervowen streams of narration.
