Music in late 1800s/early 1900s
Transcript of Music in late 1800s/early 1900s
Music is evolving during this time, giving birth to blues, ragtime, and jazz.
Ragtime is a genre of music in which it is sung in a lively manner. Ragtime was opposite blues, expressing cheerfulness and joy.
Blues became popular in the 1860s and portrayed depression, and were sang acappela (without instruments)
In the 1860s African Americans had evolved spirituals and 'ragged music' into blues, ragtime, and jazz.
Jazz was developed in the early 1900s. Jazz relied on improvisation because most african americans could not read music. Jazz was unique because of the use of instruments. Primarily the saxophone, piano, and trumpet.
Also, in the 1880s and 1890s European symphony orchestras and Operas were being assembled, mostly in Boston and Chicago. Symphonies and Operas were devoted to bring European music to the American audiences.
Louis Armstrong is born in 1901 and changes Jazz forever, and helps spread it throughout the world.
Louis Armstrong had a unique style of playing the saxophone that is imitated to this today
