After John Lewis, the most original of third-stream composers was perhaps another white intellectual, Bob Graettinger (1923), whose four-movement suite City Of Glass (april 1948) and six-movement suite This Modern World (may 1953), both eventually recorded by Stan Kenton, were as subtle and imposing as anything done by the classical avantgarde, especially in the way they balanced atonality and organization, both pushed to manic extremes. Unique to Graettinger were not only the rigor but also a stylistic range that turned his pieces into labyrinthine postmodernist journeys.

Graettinger died in 1957.
