Jochmann, Tomáš ; KŘIŠŤAN, Vít (advisor) ; RŮŽIČKA, Jiří (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate a way in which professor Barry Harris approaches harmony. As an example I am using his own interpretation of compositions, where I explain, how chords and harmonic movements are created throughout Harris' improvisation. As a medium to complete my studies I mainly focused on the personal visit of his workshops as well as studying his recordings and video schools.
