read pp. 52 - 59 in nisenson

vocab: paradox, spontaneous, ubiquitious, labrynth, visceral, deride, catharsis, fascism, transcend

discussion question:
listen to "milestones" by the miles davis sextet and compare it to the earlier work of coltrane and the miles davis quintet.
how does the use of modes alter the way the performers play? (is cannonball (alto) doing the same thing as miles and train?)
