In this page you will also find Spotify playlist about different styles of Jazz. Jazz is a music genre that originated in the African-American communities of New Orleans in the United States. It was born in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and developed in ragtime and blues.
Many people consider jazz as America’s classical music. Since the 1920s Jazz Age, jazz has become recognized as a well-respected form of music. It linked African-American and European-American musical parentage. Jazz is made of swing and blue notes, call and response vocals, improvisation as well as polyrhythms. The roots of jazz are in West African cultural and musical expression, and in African-American music traditions, as well as European military band music. Jazz is now one of America’s original art forms. Jazz spread around the globe and it drew on national, regional, and local musical cultures, which gave rise to different jazz styles.
New Orleans jazz like the one performed by Original Perdido Jazz Band started in the early 1910s, combining earlier brass-band marches, beguine, French quadrilles ragtime and blues with collective polyphonic improvisation.
In the 1930s, some dance-oriented swing big bands, Kansas City jazz, a hard-swinging, bluesy, improvisational style and Gypsy jazz (a style that emphasized musette waltzes) were the prominent styles while other popular styles are Acid Jazz, Avant-Garde Jazz, Free Jazz, Bebop and Hard Bop which emerged in the 1940s, shifting jazz from danceable popular music toward a more challenging “musician’s music” which was played at faster tempos and used more chord-based improvisation, Big Band, Blue Note, Contemporary Jazz, Cool that developed near the end of the 1940s, introducing calmer, smoother sounds and long, linear melodic lines, Crossover Jazz, Dixieland, Ethno-jazz, Fusion, Gypsy Jazz, Latin Jazz, Mainstream Jazz, Ragtime, Smooth Jazz, Trad Jazz.
Among the greatest jazz artists of all times there are Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson. Our Jazz Spotify Playlists include all of them plus some of the newest living jazz artists such as Bruno Marini, Cristina Mazza and John Kinnison.
Spotify Playlists Rock-Jazz-Blues – Blues Playlists
This page also includes some playlists of Blues which was originated around the 1870s in the Deep South of the United States by African-Americans from roots in African musical traditions, African-American work songs, and spirituals.
Blues incorporated work songs, spirituals, field hollers, shouts, chants, and rhymed simple narrative ballads. The blues form is formed by the call-and-response pattern, the blues scale and blues chord progressions, being the twelve-bar blues the most common. Blue notes (or “worried notes”), usually thirds, fifths or sevenths flattened in pitch are also an essential part of the sound. Blues shuffles or walking bass reinforce the trance-like rhythm and form a repetitive effect known as the groove.
Blues is also characterized by its instrumentation and lyrics. Early traditional blues verses consisted of a single line repeated four times often played on the guitar or simple instruments. It was only in the first decades of the 20th century that the most common structure became standard as AAB pattern. Early blues frequently was a loose narrative related to the racial discrimination suffered by African-Americans.
Best Blues artists ever include: B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Albert King, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Elmore James, Jimi Hendrix, Etta James, Freddie King. Many pop or rock artists have also performed blues not only in America. A good example is Blues For Two, an album performed by Italian pop singer and guitarist Bobby Solo and Silvia, including some of the best classics of blues. It’s worth mentioning Andy Haze Blues Band, Jessita Mc Kinney, Letizia Micheli as examples of American Style Blues.
