This PhD project examines the central issue of intertextuality and dialogism m jazz trom a range ot critical, analytical and practical perspectives. A Lcal vocabulary drawn from theories of 'codes', including work in the fields of intertextuality studies and semiotics, is applied to the study of jazz performance in order to further expand on theories of signifyin' already popular in jazz studies. The concept of 'code-mixing' is central to the thesis, and various methods by which jazz musicians juxtapose and blend codes, often representative of different cultural areas, are identified and analyzed using notated examples.
