demonstrate traditional jazz clarinet techniques and language in terms of motives,

patterns, and a variety of articulations. This project also includes guidelines on how to

practice jazz improvisation as well as how to apply Fountain’s techniques and jazz

language to one’s own improvisation. Though there are countless musicians who have

made remarkable contributions to the development of the jazz language, Pete Fountain’s
