Abstract:Jazz academia has produced notable works including instrumental methodology, ensemble arrangements, compositions and historical literature. Studies on the jazz rhythm section however, are virtually non-existent. Blues music from the Southwest, in its many forms, made its way to Kansas City and had a profound impact on territory bands, William “Count” Basie’s rhythm section and a young Earl “ Bud ” Powell. The scope of this thesis will partially address this void by providing new insight into the early evolution of the modern jazz rhythm section. This thesis will examine two key rhythm sections whose influence transcended geographic constraints, transporting blues and swing music into a new era known as bebop.
