Styles of Jazz Cool Jazz and Bebop Jazz Cool jazz is often identified by lighter tones and relaxed tempos. It came into style soon after the end of WWII. It is the style of Jazz used in the performance, Take Five. It is usually played a lot slower than Bebop and it sounds very arranged. For example, if there are more than one melodist, one can play the melody and the other one can play a harmony, long notes or another melody in the background.

Music is generally made up with single rhythm repetition and iteration such as those of the compositions of La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Philip Glass and John Adams.
The shift from the Classical to the Romantic era signified a new importance on relations within the octave other than the tonic-dominant relation. Often, Romantic composers, in this case, Frederic Chopin and Felix Mendelssohn, use symmetrical divisions of the octave as a platform from which they can launch wandering or very pointed progressions, depending on the direction and magnitude of the potential harmonic energy. Whether it is a continuous circle of minor thirds or a form of axial melody that teeters much like a seesaw, these balanced relationships of pitches have a destabilizing effect on the tonic as it places a more equal weight on other intervals in the key. Not only can symmetry be found on the local levels of melody and harmonic
Jazz-Rock is quite different from earlier Jazz in a number of ways: • Jazz’s rhythm is renowned by its “swing”, while on the other hand Jazz-fusion is more based on eighth or sixteenth note rhythms. • Jazz mostly uses acoustic instruments such as piano, double bass, horns but jazz-rock mostly uses electronic instruments such as electric guitar, bass guitar, electric piano etc. •
I’d say that the dynamics of this piece covers from mezzo piano (moderate soft) to mezzo forte (moderately loud). Because the melody of the keyboard was accompanied with Seba’s voice, this interpretation presents a homophonic texture. Nevertheless, there were some parts were you can only listen to the keyboard playing the melody, and without any kind of accompaniment. This, makes it monophonic too. The type of this

The E.V.I., from the Big Band, was an unique instrument with a strangely pleasant sound for Jazz much like the Vibraphone, from the Jazz Combo, and this brought a different feel yet was able to keep the authentic tone to the genre by adding a
Continuing on, the phrase builds up to an E flat, followed by filler rests that set the stage for the second character to enter. It sings a C minor triad at a piano dynamic, finishing the phrase with a diminished 7th in the Mozart and a dominant 7th in the Beethoven. The unresolved chords allow for the reappearance of the first character, who belts out the melody with the same arpeggiated motif from before, but this time in the dominant major—G major. Once again, the quieter character follows, this time resolving the phrase to a C minor chord. As seen in these two pieces, Beethoven copied the notes and story told in Mozart’s sonata.
The dance is full of gusto, flirtation that lends itself freely to improvisation . Here, I enclose the opening of Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy, Op. 25, 3rd movement, which is a violin fantasy based on the themes from the opera Carmen by Bizet, in fig. 5 to show the use of seguidilla
