But critic Joachim-Ernst Berendt argues that its terms of reference and its definition should be broader, [9] defining jazz as a "form of art music which originated in the United States through the confrontation of the Negro with European music" [10] and arguing that it differs from European music in that jazz has a "special relationship to time defined as ' swing '", involves "a spontaneity and vitality of musical production in which improvisation plays a role" and contains a "sonority and manner of phrasing which mirror the individuality of the performing jazz musician". [9] In the opinion of Robert Christgau, "most of us would say that inventing meaning while letting loose is the essence and promise of jazz." [11] A broader definition that encompasses all of the radically different eras of jazz has been proposed by Travis Jackson: "it is music that includes qualities such as swing, improvising, group interaction, developing an 'individual voice', and being open to different musical possibilities". [12] Krin Gibbard has provided an overview of the discussion on definitions, arguing that "jazz is a construct" that, while artificial, still is useful to designate "a number of musics with enough in common to be understood as part of a coherent tradition". [13] In contrast to the efforts of commentators and enthusiasts of certain types of jazz, who have argued for narrower definitions that exclude other types, the musicians themselves are often reluctant to define the music they play.

It was a life changing experience for me to study about the music of the United States. I studied about Jazz, Blues, Ragtime, Spirituals and Gospel Essential Jazz: The First 100 Years (with CD-ROM). Jazz is the best type of music, because it really gets you into a happy, loving, relaxed mood to dance to. It's in my opinion the most complicated yet relaxing music there is. Exodus, Metallica, anthrax, GWAR, megadeath, ministry, motothead, pantera, SLAYER Jazz Musicians of the Early Years, to 1945! Other than that, the line between the two was blurred. Only in the 1920s did jazz music begin to employ complex harmonies that went well beyond ragtime harmony. Last but not least, jazz was another stage in the ongoing process of black assimilation of white technology. Most of the instruments were as "un-African" as possible The Eb Real Book, Sixth Edition. Highlife's popularity slowly dwindled among the Igbos, supplanted by jùjú and fuji. However, a few performers kept the style alive, such as Yoruba singer and trumpeter Victor Olaiya (the only Nigerian to ever earn a platinum record), Stephen Osita Osadebe, Sonny Okosun, Victor Uwaifo, and Orlando "Dr Peggy Gilbert & Her All-Girl Band. Gillespie avoided serving in World War II. In his Selective Service interview, he told the local board, "in this stage of my life here in the United States whose foot has been in my ass?" In 1943, Gillespie joined the Earl Hines band. In 1943 I heard the great Earl Hines band which had Bird in it and all those other great musicians Jazz 101. Perhaps the most controversial movement in the history of jazz came with the advent of free jazz, or "New Thing" as it was later to be called. While elements of free jazz existed within the structure of the music for many years, most notably in the "experiments" of such innovators as Coleman Hawkins, Pee Wee Russell and Lennie Tristano, it wasn't until the mid to late '50s that it emerged as a bona fide style, coming as it did from such pioneers as saxophonist Ornette Coleman and pianist Cecil Taylor Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course Sampler: For Clinics, Seminars, Workshops.

More importantly than Shepp's sound-blocks, however, is his melodic material: of which "the melodic flow is broken into atoms" (italics added; Jost 108) (see Figure 17 below). This construction of phrases through fragments is well exemplified in 20th-century classical music by Webern's "Sechs Bagatellen" in which musical flow is also broken up into several isolated rhythmic identities, and dynamic markings as well as articulation and register are highly variable from one fragment to the next in each of the four voices: this method being labeled "klangfarbenmelodie," or "sound color melody." But sometimes, when you least expect it, all of mother culture’s fury collides in a wave of malicious fate, and you suddenly find yourself exposed to someone else’s horrific, unforgivable taste in music. Except what I’m doing, which is blogging about it.
