The American Jazz Music Audience.
This publication reports the findings of research carried out in recognition of the need for an in-depth analysis of the U.S. jazz music audience in order to identify and assess ways to shape the future of jazz as part of the "Survey of Public Participation in The Arts" conducted in 1982. The research problem was to learn the size, characteristics, and boundaries of the jazz music public. Following an executive summary of the study and an introduction, the report is presented in nine chapters: (1) "Size of the Jazz Music Audience"; (2) "Audience Characteristics"; (3) "Performers of Jazz Music"; (4) "Performance Locations"; (5) "Residence Locations of the Audience"; (6) "Audience Crossover"; (7) "Demand and Barriers To Increased Attendance"; (8) "Number of Persons Who Like Jazz Music"; and (9) "Characteristics of Persons Who Like Jazz Music." Included are 19 tables related to the discussion. (KWL)
