|dc.description.abstract||The purpose of this study is to examine specific melodic elements of saxophonist
David Binney. The five improvised solos were selected from standard jazz repertoire
that Binney has produced, as well as an improvisation from one of his compositions.
Each solo was transcribed and examined to identify repeated melodic devices. The
analysis presents a detailed examination of the repeated use of appoggiaturas,
enclosures, neighbour groups, multi-note encirclements, encirclement chains, and two
melodic motifs. The melodic formulae that are employed are discussed in the analysis
with illustrated examples. An interview with Binney was conducted to discuss his
performance practice and the melodic devices identified in his improvisations.||en_AU|
