Yeah B has a clearer sentence structure with commas. C is definately wrong cus "who" doesn't match with "yet".

"both" makes an incorrect comparison here. I'm bagging (D) because C distorts the meaning.

gmatt73 is right, there is no need for "both" in the sentence b/c stride-piano tradition is one thing.

'both' makes no sense in A, B & E.

C:
Jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, who produced a body of work rooted in the stride-piano tradition of Willie (The Lion) Smith and Duke Ellington, yet in many ways he stood apart from the mainstream jazz repertory.

D:
Jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk produced a body of work that was rooted in the stride-piano tradition of Willie (The Lion) Smith and Duke Ellington, yet in many ways he stood apart from the mainstream jazz repertory.

C & D look equally good
D sound better to my ears. Dont ask why

clear D for having modifier at right place and 'that' is needed.
