Miles Davis and Modal Jazz

Via Speakin’ the Blues I discovered a thesis written by Myles Boothroyd of Central Michigan University called “Modal Jazz and Miles Davis: George Russell’s Influence and the Melodic Inspiration Behind Modal Jazz”.

Yes! Academia and Miles Davis all at once! It’s actually quite interesting for those seeking more in-depth thought into Miles Davis and the technical aspects of modal jazz – especially when the thesis shifts to Davis and the recording of Kind of Blue.

Here is the .pdf file. Grab a latte’, drop the needle on Kind of Blue and enjoy. It won’t be like reading a homework assignment, I promise!
