HISTORY OF JAZZ:
Accompanying: To perform with another performer or performers usually in a less prominent role; for example to play the piano or guitar accompaniment for a saxophone or trumpet solo.
Antiphonal: An adjective describing a common pattern of interaction between improvisers or between sections of a band, taking the form of a question and answer or a call and response. Fletcher Hendersons band used this device in many cases.
Appoggiatura: A musical ornament consisting of a single tone moving to an adjacent tone which is harmonized.
Arco: The technique of playing a stringed instrument with a bow. Arpeaciio: In which the individual tones of a chord are not sounded simultaneously but performed like a melody (single tones), nearly always starting at the bottom or lowest tone.
Arrangement: An adaptation of a musical composition. The arranger rearranges variations of the composition, dealing with such criteria as melody, harmony, and rhythm, also adding sections and modulations not present before.
Arranger: One who writes adaptations of already written material for a particular group of performers.
Attach: The very beginning of a sound, or manner in which the tones or percussive occurrences are first sounded.
