Additional Information: This article offers an original contribution to the study of material culture by empirically examining the ‘affordances’ of objects in social life. The empirical exemplar employed is that of the use of instruments in jazz improvisation, but the theoretical contribution goes far beyond this specialised example, and impacts on theoretical conceptions of social action with objects in general. The article is the result of a significant piece of original empirical research. The article was refereed by four anonymous readers.
