wow this is a tough one at first glance

A, C and E are eliminated because it says "produced a body of work both rooted" and you need "produced a body of work that was both rooted" because it can be read as Thel. Monk produced a body....of work that was rooted"

B is eliminated because "the jazz pianist and composer" implies that he is the only jazz pianist and composer in the world.

so D

I think a better reason to kick out B is that..
rooted both is not followed by two parallels:

rooted both in the stride piano tradition of x and y
Stride piano tradition and Y are not parallel.

It could have improved it it were:
rooted both in the stride piano tradition of x and something something of y

A is wrong for "both rooted".
B and E are wrong for not having parallel structure after "both".
C is wrong as there is no verb in the first part of the sentence.

on C, why do you say we need a verb in the first clause of the sentence?

With C, the first clause does not have any main verb.

ok..i see that we would need some verb in the context of the whole sentence, I thought you meant that generally speaking all clauses needed a verb

its late here!

D is correct because it does not offer an unparallel structure like B: rooted both in Noun of X and Y, but a more simple but correct structure: rooted in X and E

If B were correct, it would include in that of or in the stride-piano tradition of before Duke Elington to make a parrale structure both in Noun of X and that of Y
Besides:

(A) incorrect because of both rooted --> there's just only one Noun standing before both so both here is not suitable
(C) incorrect because the main clause is ungrammatical: 2 subject Jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk and he. Besides, yet is not suitable because it should not be included in a main clause but in a 2nd clause
(E) same error as B

In the stride-piano tradition of Willie Smith and duke...is a single phrase...Both cant be used while referring to it...So B is wrong
