Abstract

In 1983 Brofsky proposed that a series of three recordings of “My Funny Valentine” by Miles Davis could be understood as representing a type of performative composition process. In this article, I account for a further seven recordings and question the analytical and conceptual basis of Brofsky’s thesis.
