Jazz is a musical art form which originated around the beginning of the 20th century in Black communities in the Southern United States from a confluence of African and European music traditions. The style’s West African pedigree is evident in its use of blue notes, call-and-response, improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation, and the swung note of ragtime.

    Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and Eric Dolphy should all be in the top artists, dammit. And Diana Krall shouldn't be in the picture. [2] Yehhh!

    Hey I started a new group for music fanatics, the focus is going to be different than the ExMF and the frosty paradigm. It's a bit of an experiment but if a bunch of people get in it could be cool. Join if you are interested. I want this group to become a center for music discussion on Lastfm (even though it's metal centered, other genres are more than welcome to be discussed.) Cheers! http://www.last.fm/group/Unholy+Cult+of+the+Appraised+and+Damned

    se alguém tiver boas recomendações de artista de jazz atuais, manda mensagem no meu perfil, por favor. tenho preferencia por vocal feminino forte, mas tanto faz, qualquer indicação já me satisfaz
