Abstract

This article considers the emergence and development of New Orleans jazz revivalism in terms of a conceptual framework developed around the core category of ‘authenticating’. It developsa grounded theory of authenticating conceptualized as a ‘basic social process’ and constructs a phased trajectory of authenticating that incorporates the major sub-processes identified as‘sourcing’, ‘selecting’, ‘adopting’, ‘adapting’ and ‘progressing’ authenticity. The article sets these sub-processes within competing social worlds of jazz authenticity and purism, as they and their accompanying ideologies have variously emerged and segmented.
