McCoy Tyner, Austin Peralta, and Modal Jazz

by Peterson, Jake

Abstract

This thesis uses transcriptions to analyze the influence of the modal jazz pianist McCoy Tyner on the improvisational style of the jazz piano prodigy Austin Peralta. The study both explores the roots of modal jazz and considers how Peralta has incorporated and deviated from the melodic, rhythmic and harmonic elements of Tyner's style.
