Witulski, Christopher James
The purpose of this study is to describe the uses of Middle Eastern and Andalusian musical style in the music of Gil Evans, Miles Davis and John Coltrane with special emphasis on their respective individual interpretations and places within the transition into modality. The study will remain within the period of jazz developmentally following the bebop phase of Charlie Parker and will include artists after the 1970s only in reference to their positions as students of the previous developments and musical figures.
