The result of an international event celebrating the second UNESCO International Jazz Day held on April 30 2013 at the University of Padova, Italy, this book represents the development of a project begun some years before to investigate the issue of improvisation, considered as a multi-faced concept and practice. The initial focus of this project was to discuss the different meanings attributed to the concept of improvisation, starting from questioning the common misunderstanding which interprets improvisation as a naive behaviour rather than high-level performance. According with these premises, Education as Jazz represents a metaphor and a challenge, exploring the potential of jazz conceived not only as kind of music or art, but rather as a mix of values, attitudes, and skills fundamental in everyday life and in human development. As such, the book adopts an interdisciplinary perspective and a multidimensional approach. According to the rationale of the UNESCO International Jazz Day, which highlights the role of jazz in promoting peaceful societies, intercultural dialogue, gender equality, and innovative spirit, this book offers a concrete educational resource and theoretical framework oriented towards a new pedagogy for freedom.
