Description: The article describes the research of Cameron Walter into unpublished Canadian jazz ensemble music suitable for student performers. Walter drew upon the earlier work of creators of Canadian repertoire guidelists for the John Adaskin Project, which has involved developing an understanding of teaching situations, consultation with experts in the repertoire and experienced teachers, classroom testing of selected repertoire, and finally the creation of a guide to the selected repertoire. Walter sought to develop standards by which the level of difficulty and appropriateness of big band jazz performance pieces might be judged and placed in curricular contexts. He identified and located unpublished Canadian works for jazz ensemble, established guidelines for levels of difficulty (technical, improvisational, and musical) and for pedagogical value, and then oversaw the testing of these pieces in classrooms. This has resulted in his Guide to Unpublished Canadian Jazz Ensemble Music Suitable for Student Performers, published as one of the John Adaskin Project guidelists, and also in his guide to Canadian jazz ensemble music which he rates as “ Very Difficult.” The latter guide is available through the Canadian Music Education Research Centre (CMERC). Assessment charts are included in the article as an appendix.
