Definition: a term sometimes given to the music inspired by bebop but played by white musicians after World War II such as Gerry Mulligan, Lee Konitz, Lennie Tristano, and Warne Marsh. However, Miles Davis, with his album Birth of the Cool, helped spread the popularity of the style, which tended to be more subdued and cerebral than hard bop, a parallel post-bebop movement.
