Thanks to jazz, we now have mainstream music genres such as pop, rock, and funk. Originated in the early 1900s in New Orleans, jazz is characterized by distinctive rhythms (‘swinging’ notes), sophisticated harmonies, and most importantly, improvisation. Almost any instrument can be used in a jazz band. But it usually consists of a bass, guitar, drums, keyboard, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, and lead vocals.
The longer you listen to it, the more you feel that the music is evolving. A few legendary names in the jazz world include: Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, the Ellington Big Band, Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Miles Davis.
Pay tribute to the true kings of music when you use these smooth jazz fonts.
