This chapter examines and compares Édouard Glissant's writings and Miles Davis's music. This comparative approach leads to reflections on the connection of their strategies of resistance and their individual formal concerns. Based on Glissant's remark that his writing style and Davis's jazz style are identical, the chapter suggests that the literature of the Caribbean and jazz music in the United States belong to areas of cultural activity which have comparable histories despite their dissimilarities.

Keywords:   Édouard Glissant, Miles Davis, jazz, literature, Caribbean
