"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.

Against a brooding, electronic backdrop, a lone tenor sax wails in the night. The track is a remix and remaster of the first part of the track, "Ex Machina", from my royalty free album, Experiments in Green.

A short, hard-core, bebop two-part invention for solo piano/keyboard. This piece wouldn't exist except for the huge influence of Thelonious Monk (to whom the piece is dedicated) and J. S. Bach.

Nice big band pop with touch of jazz. Can't shake this 1980 Japanese anime feeling when listening to this one. Jazz band sounds are not my strong side, but it turned out quite ok. :)
