I believe that he teaches us that anything is possible with hard work and dedication no matter how hard things may seem. Although I am not a big music fan, I feel this concert was worthwhile watching as well as listening too. At the end I am glad I watched this film because it allowed me to be more open minded to music and the different styles and forms. These people and countless more, and innumerable more influences on the music scene that it is owed gratitude that jazz has become what it is and that it has survived so
Similar to the way that Jazz was viewed as a music that could absorb and evolve with alternative forms of music; the Lindy Hop was designed to also encompass the constant evolution of social desires and cultural needs, while keeping a basic foundation. Many people view the Charleston as the largest foundation to the Lindy Hop, yet others argue that the Breakaway was its core. The Breakaway is the core moment that gives the Lindy Hop the unusual feature it is
Produced by Alfred Lion this album is forever a classic example of Jazz, Hard Bop and dance music of all kinds. With Coltrane on tenor saxophone, Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Paul Chambers on bass, Kenny Drew on piano and ‘Philly’ Joe Jones on drums this album is sure to make you want to get up and dance. ‘Blue Train’ has a fast to medium tempo about it and while it does swing it has more of a hard bop feel to it. You can definitely hear the blue forms in the songs and the instruments are never over powering or fighting with one another. It is a masterful piece and even if you know nothing about Jazz
Next was Eddie Perfect, who received quite a lot of applause upon entering the stage. He was young, charming and had a very nice rich quality to his voice, as well as a great range. But what specifically reminded me very much of a young Michael Buble was his style. “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Waltz for Debby” and “Ancient Memories” are my favorite out of all the song at that night. Jazz music sound soft and mellow as playing on however like all music, it tells a story and here are the stories of “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Waltz for Debby” and “Ancient Memories”.
Mambo music is up tempo and mainly instrumental that has many different distinctions and definitions. It is a big-band dance music genre featuring antiphonal sectional arrangements for contrasting brass instruments. Typical instruments involved in a mambo song are the conga, cajon, bongo, timbales, claves, upright bass, piano, trombones, trumpets, and saxophone. Mambo has its origins in American big band style of music mashed together with Cuban ideas of the montuno and danzon. The montuno involves a rhythmic backbeat infused with often-improvised solos.
Dave Matthews was adamant grass roots methods of tourism, and his audacity, he was successful and spread his message of self-affirmation anti-racial millions. Many individual successes have been achieved that are the legacy of the Dave Matthews Band. Dave Matthews in collaboration with the local jazz guru John D'earth picked up some exceptional players from the local jazz scene to tape some songs Matthews Band.

It was recorded on August 22, 1938 by Decca Records, whom he had a record deal with. I would consider this piece’s genre to be Big Band Jazz/Swing with a medium/fast tempo. The detailed dynamics, syncopated rhythms, and up-tempo swing really add to the excitement of this tune, which is in the musical form AABA. The song starts off with a 2 bar piano intro which gets the rhythm flowing and lets sections continuously join in, and is followed by four 32 bar AABA choruses. The soloing instruments seem to be the tenor saxophone, piano, trumpet (sometimes muted), and more saxophones.
As it often refers to Gerry Mulligan and his associates in California, "West Coast" merely becomes synonymous with "cool jazz", although Lester Young, Claude Thornhill, and Miles Davis were based in New York. At the same time, many musicians associated with West Coast jazz "were much more involved in a hotter approach to jazz. Communication being what it is, it is hardly likely that any style of jazz was fostered exclusively in one area." Some jazz critics, such as French critic Hugues Panassié, looked down upon West Coast jazz because most of its musicians were white. However, there was a sizable number of African American musicians who played in the style, including Curtis Counce, Chico Hamilton, Buddy Collette and Hampton Hawes.
It featured a mezzo soprano vocalist, Allison Sanders, a jazz trio (guitar, double bass, and drum set), and of course, the orchestra. The intertwining between the three parts was ingenious and entertaining. The orchestra would abbreviate gorgeous vocals, with several moments throughout the piece that showcase the jazz group. My own personal bias told me that the double bass could have been louder, especially since it was hooked up to an amplifier. The last piece was one of my all time favorite pieces, Dvorak Symphony No.
His music, as early as it was, had brought back jazz to the modern community. Society had enjoyed jazz and this sparked many industries such as record companies re-issuing jazz catalog across the world. As Marsalis’ career started to bloom, Wynton passion for classical music drove him into pursuing just that, a career in classical music, as well as jazz. As young as age twenty, Marsalis recorded trumpet concertos of musicians such as Mozart, Haydn, and Hummel. His popular new debut record lead him to record as many as 10 other classical records.
