Abstract (Summary)

Much of the world's music is based on the passage of aural tradition, stimulating evolution within different genres. In this paradigm, contemporary saxophonist Kenny Garrett developed characteristics in the style of Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, who in turn had developed traits of Charlie "Bird" Parker before him. Musicians should always be aware of which artists from previous eras influenced players they are studying in the modern day, as techniques have been passed down from generation to generation, and as more musicians learn them, they develop into entirely new concepts. This process is identified in the comparisons made between Kenny Garrett, Cannonball Adderley, and Charlie Parker.
