Ferther more, Jazz is concidered by many as the most americana stlye of music. Influences in art, movies, television, and other genres can still be noteorized in todays moderen era. Diversity in Jazz has made the genre very adept, changing as people do. Founded in New Orleands in the early 1900's was the greatest platform for success.
Jazz Band II 18 October 2013 Mike Vax: BigBandJazz.net Mike Vax is an outstanding trumpeter who specializes in Jazz studies. On his album “BigBandJazz.net” he plays in a Ferguson-esque manor, not in terms of range, but style—playing over the band as the featured soloist. The first track on this album is “Royal Rendezous”, a Mike Vax original, which is a nice and mellow swing chart featuring tenor Scott Peterson and trumpeter Mike Olmos on the solos. I really enjoy this song because it contrasts in balance and dynamics. For example, the song at times changes from a quiet saxophone soli, to a loud shout chorus, to a uniquely created improvised solo.
“When I sing, I believe. I'm honest.”- Frank Sinatra Every day we hear the songs of new artist on the radio and we are captivated by them, at least for a little while. But, there are few artists who stand the test of time. As an artist, you can say that you made it big when ten, twenty, even thirty years after you die, people are still listening to your music. As good old Mr. Sinatra said, “If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere.” Francis Albert Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Born in the heart of New Orleans, it is lead to believe that jazz is both a popular music style and serious art form. This is proven to be correct through its development in the 19th and early 20th century, being heavily influenced through ragtime, marching bands, blues and African American spirituals. Throughout history, jazz has created serious use of improvisation, individuality and complexity that has shaped and aspired artists of today’s music. Before 1920, ragtime was seen to be a popular music style consisting of syncopated melodies and steady beats that had high contribution in creating a style of jazz. Primarily developed by African American Pianists who traveled throughout the south playing in saloons, dance halls and brothels, Ragtime flooded throughout America the music publishing industry, a music interest for whites and blacks.
First touch to Latin Jazz Music is a kind of indispensable element of people’s day-to-day life. Music is not only a pastime or an expression of art; more significantly, it also conveys musicians’ spiritual world. Unlike the pop songs that we hear in our iPods, the live band gave me a new concept about Jazz music. It seems that jazz is less relevant to our daily life and I have never heart live Latin jazz concert before; however, I got a heart attack since I had my first close contact with such a type of music. What impressed me primarily was its combination of instruments.
In fact, in the case of many successful jazz players, it is just the beginning. Bassist Neils-Henning Orsted Pederson has cited J.S. Bach as a primary influence on his playing and has even performed the “Minuet II” from his Suite for Cello Solo live in concert.  Pianist Herbie Hancock claims to have fused the contrapuntal practices of Mozart and Bach into his improvisation.  Many
In American towns across the nation during the nineteenth century were introduced to the pleasures of band music. Whether marching in a parade for the Fourth of July, welcoming dignitaries and officials into town, or just for some nice relaxing listening pleasure, most of these bands were primarily or exclusively brass instruments. These were unquestionably the most visible organizations of the day. They could be found regaling graduates and guests at commencement ceremonies, or entertaining many people on steamboat excursions. Brass bands enlivened military units on the parade ground and accompanied civilian couples on the dance floor.
I melded the “beyond category” individuals of my orchestra into the most well-known jazz orchestral units in the history of jazz. My style is often used to create the many styles of music today, like a foundation or standard to make other music. My reputation increased after my death on May 24, 1974 because of the broad influence of my music and its diversity. I am the greatest icon of the 1920s. I am the one and only,
Also another scene from the movie, which was characterized by music and that definitely impressed me, was when Laszlo begins singing followed by many people, La Marsellesa, the French national anthem, even before the occupation of the country. This singing was significant at Rick’s Café Américain because it was louder than the Germans, who were singing Die Wacht am Rhein, which was considered a patriotic anthem during Nazi Germany. Undoubtedly music represents much more than a sound. The song As Time Goes By witnessed the love between Rick and Ilsa. For them this song always brings fond memories and we can see it, when Ilsa is sitting adjacent to Sam’s piano quietly enjoying this song.
Count Basie “Jumpin’ at the Woodside” Count Basie was born in 1904 in Red Bank, New Jersey, and grew up playing the piano. He was a leading figure of the swing era in jazz and formed the Count Basie Orchestra, which was one of the first big bands made. The band reached fame with hit songs such as “One o'clock Jump” (1937), “Jumpin' at the Woodside” (1938), and “Taxi War Dance” (1939). However, I will be focusing primarily on the song “Jumpin’ at the Woodside” and educate you with an in-depth description of the piece. It was recorded on August 22, 1938 by Decca Records, whom he had a record deal with.
