Jazz a la Mode


Notes

Modal jazz is jazz that uses musical modes rather than chord progressions as a harmonic framework and originated in the late 1950s,
epitomized by Miles's 1959 album "Kind of Blue" and John Coltrane's classic quartet from 1960–64. Alhough the term "modal" comes from
the use of the pitches of particular modes (or scales) in the creation of solos, modal jazz incorporates single chords that may last several measures, pedal points and drones, quartal harmonies or melodies, and polytonality. Enjoy these masters of modal music!
