The purpose of this thesis is to present and analyze six original compositions and arrangements by Agustin A. Conti that demonstrate the influence of Argentinean music on Jazz composition. Conti’s compositions combine elements of the Chacarera, Candombe, Murga, Milonga, and Malambo styles, with the odd-meter ostinato and metric modulation used in modem Latin jazz. The thesis includes scores of the six works, as well as a CD of the thesis recital, performed by a jazz quartet consisting of tenor saxophone (or soprano), piano, electric bass and drum set.
