What is Jazz?
Jazz is a music genre that originated at the beginning of the 20th century, within the American communities of the Southern United States. Its roots lie in the combining certain European harmonis and form elements, with existing African based music. Its African musical basis is evident in its use of blue notes, improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation and swung notes. From its early development until the present day, jazz has also incorporated elements from popular music especially, in its early days, from American popular music.
