Just as the pace of the post-millennial world has quickened, modern mainstream jazz musicians augment, combine, and introduce musical elements regularly. Many of these techniques developed in the process have not yet been elucidated by arranging texts. In this study some of these developments will be delineated, capturing a snapshot of how musicians and arrangers such as Michael Brecker, Chris Potter, Dave Holland, Seamus Blake, and Joshua Redman have implemented these techniques in the pursuit of the next great movement in jazz repertory during the first decade of the twenty first century. Specific regard is given to developments in compound or additive meter, complex rhythmic figures, unorthodox orchestration, and the increased influence of varied traditional ethnic musics.
