I think A , B, E are out because both doesnt work....there is no parallel between stide piano tradition, and duke ellington

and D is the better answer compared to C , C the comma is unnecessary

so D

I go for (B).
In C , D and E it seems that 'Jazz painist' and 'composer Thelonious Monk' are two different persons.Had there been a comma(,) after 'composer' then it would be fine.

What is the OA?

In a newspaper you would see B, but that does not mean it is correct english!

I would go for D as the correct answer.

Go with D

Usage of both is incorrect in all the options

D

In A, B and E, "both" is placed inappropriately. It could be "traditions of both A and B". So, OUT

In C, the non-restrictive clause does not serve any purpose and is incorrectly used. OUT

D is concise and correct grammatically.

I'm left with D though I dont like the way it is formed. C & B were the other options I might have picked.

recently dicussed. "both" makes an improper comparison here.

(D) survives
