Thread Name: Modes?
Subject: RE: Modes?
Another question, modistes: The information abou;t Jewish sounds in one mode reminded me of something in j*zz (we are not supposed to speak of j*zz here either), so I checked out Miles Davis' classic "Sketches of Spain" and discovered, naturally, that much of it is in "Spanish Phrygian". Is there more than one kind of Phrygian? And why does it sound that way? And I had always assumed that Spanish music has Arabic roots. Is Moorish music Phrygian? Yours, Peter T.
