A mixture of jazz and classical idioms, the music of Gershwin was more innovative than most of his contemporaries.

Can somebody tell me what's wrong with this sentence and why? I don't understand. :(

  • grammar -

    music . . . more innovate than . . . contemporaries

    A better way: . . . more innovative than THAT of most of his contemporaries.

  • grammar -

    When you say "more innnovative than his contemporaries" you are cocmparing the music TO the contemporaries. In reality, you are comparing Gershwin's MUSIC to contemporaries' MUSIC. Or, in otherwords not a thing to a person but a thing to a thing.
