More pointedly: bearing in mind one of the persistent metaphors used by jazz musicians about improvising is speaking, is "the linguistic turn away" a respectful vantage point for musicologists in jazz studies?

This is not to say (of course) that all jazz/improv musicians aim to "speak". Even with my own biases (music is a communicative act, even if that communication is ambiguous), I work with musicians who just don't feel the same about it.
