“What are the exact parameters of post bop? For a term that’s trundled about as frequently as this one, there’s a decided lack of consensus as to its meaning. The phrase itself isn’t much help. ‘After bop’ covers basically everything that followed and arose out of bebop’s beginnings over a half-century ago. Further narrowing reveals that post bop music has connections to bebop but in some way has moved beyond the original boundaries of the music. By this broad definition the music of Eric Person and Meta-Four fit firmly into the framework of post bop. But rather than dwell on the demarcations of what he’s doing, Person dispenses with definitions and turns his attentions to simply making music of lasting quality.” — All About Jazz
