Post Bop

Post Bop is said to have originated in New York City in the early 1960s with Miles Davis quintet releasing a string of successful albums that cemented the Post Bop style and gave it much needed exposure. Jeremy Yudkin wrote this in his definition of the genre “Forms, tempos, and meters are freer, all the compositions are new, and the band members themselves are featured composers.... An approach that is abstract and intense in the extreme, with space created for rhythmic and coloristic independence of the drummer. Drummers gained the opportunity to move in and out of the basic swing rhythm and approach that incorporated much more complex style, modal and chordal harmonies, flexible form, structured choruses, melodic variation, and free improvisation.”
