Dixieland jazz began in New Orleans and spread throughout the United States from 1917 to 1930. Dixieland is upbeat and loud with many jazz rhythms. Dixieland usually consisted of a lead trumpet, a clarinet, a saxophone, a trombone, a string bass, a piano and a drum. The bass and drum play on the down beats of one and three, while the piano plays fast chords and the clarinet, trumpet play melody and the saxophone and trombone play countermelody. Dixieland doesn’t generally use vocals, but is expressed through dynamics and rhythms.
The two chromatic notes [notes not in the original key] of a sharpened 4th and a flattened 7th appear in both keys, and the vocal melody ends on the flattened 7th of D major [C natural]. The augmented 4th interval [forming a tritone] is used frequently in West side Story. The flattened 7th is a blue note [the influence from jazz]. The harmony is tonal, but the chords contain added 6th,7ths, 9ths and 11ths. There is a dramatic neopolitan chord [the flattened supertonic- Eb major 1st inversion] in bar 95.
If you listen to it you might say A(8) but if you listen to the music Carefully, the music is slightly different which makes it same part to be A(16). And then the second chorus starts with slightly changing the note with trumpet. Second chrorus has same beat form which A(16) A(16) A(16). Then the third chorus starts. Dizzy Gillespie started adding the solos to the music.
Sam Myers’ vocals gave an impression of a deep bluesy feel that has spanned different genres of music. A couple of the songs had the readily apparent AAB form with the expected fill-ins at the end of each verse. Other songs felt like rhythm and blues or a rock style jazz providing many opportunities for varying length solos by all band members. Funderburgh and Myers’ slide harmonica did the most prominent solos. The slide harmonica solos conjured up a real “bluesy” feeling regardless of the tempo of the song and adding blues notes when needed.
Compare the Differences and Similarities of Jazz and Classical Music In this essay I will be analysing some of the differences in background between two popular styles of music, Jazz and Classical music. Firstly let us take a look at the history of Jazz music at a glance. Jazz Originating in southern USA early 1900, and is a combination of African and European music traditions. It puts together the use of blue notes, improvisation techniques, and syncopation and swing notes.  Furthermore, Black slaves from early America used to sing and play music as a form of spiritual or ritualistic hymns, which set its roots around the time of segregation in USA.
Most commonly Trombone refers to the tenor trombone which has a fundamental tone of B^aE. The trombone plays in the key of C which is the same as a piano (Samuel and Johnson N.P.). The trombone is an interesting and ingenious idea, who would have thought to buzz your lips in a cylindrical bore of metal to create such deep and rich tones. My favorite
The horns play on the first beat a G minor 1st inversion triad shifting to an F minor first inversion triad on the third beat, while the bass jumps in on the second beat with a little 8th note pick up and plays from the tonic (Bb) an ascending Bb seventh chord in quarter notes, omits the thirds and lands on the seventh at the 4th beat. Right there the rhythm is very gospel influenced and the harmony. We have the melody accenting one and three and the bass two and four. In gospel music it is a common device to separate two and four and one and three. In the harmony we have a minor triad on the 6th and 5th degree, also a harmonic device used a lot in gospel music.
Swing music, or simply Swing, is a form of American music that developed in the early 1930s and became a distinctive style by 1940. Swing uses a strong rhythm section of double bass and drums as the anchor for a lead section of brass instruments such as trumpets and trombones, woodwinds including saxophones and clarinets, and sometimes stringed instruments such as violin and guitar, medium to fast tempos, and a "lilting" swing time rhythm. The name swing came from the phrase ‘swing feel’ where the emphasis is on the off–beat or weaker pulse in the music (unlike classical music). Swing bands usually featured soloists who would improvise on the melody over the arrangement. The danceable swing style of big bands and bandleaders such as Benny Goodman was the dominant form of American popular music from 1935 to 1946, a period known as the Swing Era.
Other famous musicians at this time period were Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lead belly, and Memphis Minnie. Furthermore, the birth of Rhythm and Blues, which included genres such as Gospel music, Doo Wop, Spirituals, Chicago Blues, and Urban Blues. African Americans migrated to cities and collaborated music and formed groups. The rhythm section included: bass, drums, electric guitar and piano. Some great Urban Blues musicians were T-Bone Walker and B.B.
This section is based upon the repeated quaver motif taken from bar 45 with the motif played only in the string section (bars 138-140). A descending Eb major scale is played in bar 143 to end the 2nd section and take us into the 3rd section of the development. The 3rd section (bar 144-160) features another
