Introduction – The paper should begin with an introduction describing the person you chose, why you chose him/her, and stating your specific thesis (in bold print).

Body of Paper – Use your Installment #2 as a guideline and begin by elaborate on the analysis you have already provided. If you follow that format, and continue to elaborate, you will naturally build the body of your paper. The body of the paper will also consist of background research on the music and culture pertaining to your chosen individual.

Conclusion – The paper should end with a conclusion that revisits the original thesis, highlights what you learned through your research about the person you chose, and how the experience has impacted or altered your views about jazz, culture, and the world around you. The conclusion should be mostly in your own words, and it should revisit the original thesis, highlight what you learned as a result of your research and interview, and describe in detail how the experience has affected your opinions or views of jazz and how it relates to the world around you.

Bibliography – You must include a bibliography, showing that you used a variety of resources with at least 4 articles, books, and encyclopedias.You must include at least one of each of those.A good resource to start with is Oxford Music Online (

Requirements- By university standards, this paper is supposed to be a minimum of 2,500 words minimum (not counting the bibliography), double spaced, in a common 12-point font, Times New Roman. I, however am a firm believer in content, so as long as this is a well-researched, well-written paper, that shows that you learned as much as possible about your topic, then I believe that anywhere between 1,500-2,500 words is acceptable. So don’t feel obligated to meet that 2,500 quota.

Please include of the bibliography entries citations and in-text citations, must be cited in proper MLA-8 formatting.

I already started the introduction paragraph. I just need the rest:

“John Coltrane Genre-Crossing”

“Jazz among different music genres is highly broad and has various aspects to it. I have always been someone who is very open and intuitive about music. I recently got into Jazz just a little before Covid-19 hit. My favorite music genre is R&B and as I dove deeper into what R&B has to offer, I stumbled across R&B with a subtle twist of jazz. Some artists such as The Internet and Charlotte Day Wilson set off the motivation to find and listen to more Jazz. This juncture is what inspired me to choose John Coltrane for this paper, as he is known for genre-crossing. John Coltrane‚Äôs genre-crossing not only helped shaped the overall jazz genre, but also steered the saxophone sound in various ways and ushered the avant-garde style.”
