"This essay attempts to provide an initial set of discursive markers by which to analyze the role Islam has played in jazz music"
What? Music is sinful.
He must be using some untrue form of Islam.

I would invite you to read the article for yourself--I address the common stereotype regarding music and Islam. In fact the billions of historical adherents of Islam have developed a wide variety of musical expressions and contributions from across the world. As far as jazz is concerned, Muslims such as McCoy Tyner, Abdullah Ibrahim, Ahmad Jamal and Yusuf Lateef (and more) have played seminal roles in the development of jazz. Perhaps you can request the article through interlibrary loan. Best wishes--The Author
