Cool/West Coast Jazz Music

Cool and West Coast Jazz tempered the unruly language of Bop, re-emphasized the feel of Swing, and often let soloists work over subtle arrangements. Miles Davis' introspective trumpet style was in direct counterpoint to Dizzy Gillespie's fiery approach, while Lester Young's lyrical saxophone was a major influence on Stan Getz and Paul Desmond.
