"Jazz" music is a genre of music that originated in African American communities, particularly in the southern United States, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is characterized by its improvisation, syncopated rhythms, and use of various musical forms such as the blues and swing. Jazz music also features a wide range of instruments such as trumpet, saxophone, piano, bass and drums.

Jazz music is known for its improvisation which means that musicians play and create music on the spot, in the moment, without a previously written score. This improvisation is often based on the melody and chords of a song, but the musicians are free to add their own twists and turns to the music.

Jazz has evolved throughout the years and has many subgenres such as New Orleans jazz, swing, bebop, hard bop, cool jazz, modal jazz, free jazz, fusion jazz, and smooth jazz.

Jazz music has had a significant influence on various other genres such as rock, blues, and R&B, and it is known for its sophisticated harmonies, complex rhythms, and virtuosic musicianship. Jazz music is still an active and vital genre and many jazz musicians continue to push the boundaries of the music and create new styles and subgenres.

Sort of Spanish, sort of Tom Waits. This one is hard to classify.

Sad and smooth; Think 1950's detective film.

Fast-paced and frenetic, the acoustic bass plays in every register available to the instrument, while the drum kit is chaotic and harried. You know... Bebop.<BR>

Spring break is frequently associated with extensive gatherings and riotous partying in warm climate locations, attended regardless of participants' educational standings.

This is the music playing at the slightly-too-nice cafe - while you pretend to be rational while discussing who gets to keep which snakes in the divorce. I mean, the snakes don't really seem to care... they just hang out in the drawers most of the time. And you kind...

Cool jazz. I'm going to warn you now, that organ line gets stuck in your head really easily... like an icepick in a Marxist revolutionary. Too soon?
