Jazz is a uniquely American art form, a combination of folk traditions, Afro-Carribean rhythms, and a heaping helping of the Blues.
Jazz has expressed so many different emotions during its 100+ year history. Jazz strutted with the parades of New Orleans. Jazz celebrated the outflow of ideas of the Harlem Renaissance. Jazz swung with the youthful energy of those returning from the Second World War.
Jazz ushered in the Birth of a New Cool in the end of the 50's. It found a way to combine the pain and the joy felt while fighting for civil rights in the 60's.
It met rock 'n roll in a dirty bar and stole the fuzzy guitars and heavy drums to leave with a new fusion. It kept the tradition alive through soul and funk.
It rushed headlong into a new sound at the advent of synthesizers, and once again at the advent of laptop sequencers.
Jazz is our past. Jazz is our future.
Jazz is always present, always changing.
Most importantly, Jazz Is.
