  abstract =     "This paper describes a system developed to create
                 computer based jazz improvisation solos. The generation
                 of the improvisation material uses interactive
                 evolution, based on a dual genetic representation: a
                 basic melody line representation, with energy
                 constraints ({"}rubber band{"}) and a hierarchic
                 structure of operators that processes the various parts
                 of this basic melody. To be able to listen to and
                 evaluate the result in a fair way, the computer
                 generated solos have been imported into a musical
                 environment to form a complete jazz composition. The
                 focus of this paper is on the data representations
                 developed for this specific type of music. This is the
                 first published part of an ongoing research project in
                 generative jazz, based on probabilistic and
                 evolutionary strategies.",
