Write a minimum 1200 word paper on a jazz artist or composer. If you are unsure

Write a minimum 1200 word paper on a jazz artist or composer. If you are unsure about whether the artist fits in the jazz genre, please ask me.
Here is one possible approach for your paper. Include a basic overview of the artist’s life including background, musical training, musical influences and one or two key compositions.
You could also write about a composer’s unique style or even concentrate on a specific period of the artist’s career. For example, Miles Davis was an important contributor in several style periods.
