Free jazz is a very special case in terms of the embodiment of authority because it embodies the authority involved in the making of music not created by a composer, but rather by the performer(s), without any reference to templates and other preconceived schemes. In this article, we apply the concept of free jazz, developed by Mazzola and Cherlin (2009), as a collaborative art centered around three pillars: flow, gesture and spaces. The study focuses on two constituents, flow and gesture, and their role as identifiers for the performer of free jazz.
