The Sonata by Phil Woods (American alto sax and clarinet jazz player), Esqualo by Astor Piazzolla (Argentinian composer) and Toccata by Filippo D'Eliso (Italian composer) have in common a melodical, rhythmical and harmonic research that makes a strong suggestion for the stylistic contamination between classical and modern music.
