WHAT IS JAZZ?

 

Jazz has been defined as the art of improvisation or a musical language onto itself – but to most, jazz is a combination of improvisation, swing notes, back beats, and blues with brass instruments and a swingin’ rhythm section. These elements combined in various ways, with different cultures and contexts, create the many styles of jazz. From Dixieland and Big Band to Bebop, Avant Garde and modern day EDM – Jazz has touched so many of today’s artists and has influenced a generation of musicians and music lovers.
