Hard Bop, Funky, Gospel Jazz

What were the main characteristics of gospel or soul jazz and who were the musicians instrumental in that style? As you listen to gospel/soul jazz, who are some MODERN DAY musicians who were obviously influenced by gospel/soul jazz? For each, list the musical characteristics that are borrowed from gospel/soul jazz.P.S. 3 outside sources and 3 textbook sourcesFOR EACH OF THE WRITTEN ASSIGNMENTS, IT IS MY EXPECTATION THAT YOU WILL USE BOTH YOUR ONLINE TEXTBOOK AND A MINIMUM OF THREE OTHER RESOURCES TO DO YOUR RESEARCH/WRITING. FOR EACH OF THESE ASSIGNMENTS, PLEASE INCLUDE A BIBLIOGRAPHY (MLA FORMAT) THAT CITES THE SOURCES USED IN YOUR RESEARCH. WHILE THERE IS NO SPECIFIC ASSIGNED LENGTH TO EACH WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT, IT IS EXPECTED THAT EACH STUDENT WILL DO SERIOUS IN-DEPTH RESEARCH, CREATE AN OUTLINE/STRUCTURE, AND WRITE THOUGHTFULLY AND WITH COLLEGE-LEVEL GRAMMAR, SPELLING, PUNCTUATION, ETC. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO USE MULTIPLE SOURCES WHEN DOING THESE WRITTEN ASSIGNMENTS. ALSO, I CAUTION YOU TO ONLY USE WIKIPEDIA.COM AS A SOURCE FOR SOURCES. WIKIPEDIA.COM DOESNT PROVIDE MUCH IN-DEPTH INFORMATION. HOWEVER, IT DOES GIVE YOU MANY WONDERFUL SOURCES TO USE IN YOUR RESEARCH/WRITING.
