The piano brings two different types of rhythm to the music. It can be a low melody or a high beat. I was amazing how in all the songs they found a way to have every instrument have their moment for the audience can enjoy how that specific person plays there instruments. When the saxophone played it sounded so beautiful it could not have been jazz without a saxophone. The saxophone just made it feel more hip and grove.
Throughout time music has evolved to make its listeners feel connected to the songs. There are many different genres of music that speak to us, including country, rock, jazz, classical, opera, rap and many more. While many people love to listen to music, including myself, there is something more to love. For me the best part about music is being able to read and sing it yourself, to be able to know exactly when you are supposed to start, when you should sing louder or sing a higher pitch. While singing is fun, it’s interesting to know how much work is put into making and reading the songs.
New Orleans is undoubtedly the birthplace of jazz. As the magic of jazz brought about a new period in music history, and legends emerged, jazz quickly took on many forms and incarnations around the country. The originators and pioneers in New Orleans kept the original seed alive in what came to be known as “Dixieland Jazz.” New Orleans was the right place and the right time for jazz. Immigrants to the city in the late 19th century brought their traditions of brass bands with them: marching in parades, providing music for funerals, performing at community events. Most of those bands were all-white, however, and others were limited within specific ethnic communities (Italians, Croatians, Germans, etc.).
Like America as a whole, jazz is a mixture of several cultures, allowing it to reflect several key American ideals, including creativity. One of jazz’s core facets is improvisation, a feature perfected by Louis Armstrong, a trumpet player from New Orleans. This focus on improvisation allows artists to innovate and adapt and react as they are creating music. The freedom that jazz gives each artist results in an innumerable amount of different styles. The genre has expanded so widely that everything from mellow, smooth elevator music to huge, loud Frank Sinatra records are contained under its umbrella.
and Luhrmann collaborated with a vast amount of artist to create a grand multi decade, movie soundtrack. Both connected with this generation’s style artist and a traditional swing band, along with the usual orchestral and additive riffs. All the collaborations do, a chance to connect through the music with some many artists; you have or may not have heard before, subconsciously building connections. To keep your attention, Luhrmann parallels most of the main characters, but spinning off in his own way some of the moving characters. Even though Nick does not physically start the story the same way, he has the same passive, understanding personality.
Blues music had a special role in creating the genre. It is characterized by swing and blue notes, call and response vocals, polyrhythms and improvisation. Typical instruments are: horns, keyboards, bass, drums, guitar and vocals. Although it was mainly created by black experience in United States, many other cultures have developed the genre in various ways (for example white musicians created 'White Jazz' subgenre, having their own traditions and influences). Miles Davis and Louis Amstrong were very influential jazz musicians.
The synthesizer was popular and it was the instrument that created a lot of modern Spanish music of Mexico. “Como Te Voy a Olvidar” by Los Ángeles Azules was one of the greatest contemporary songs in Mexico. The disk reached number five on the Mexican regional music charts, automatically becoming a cultural classic hit. It is my favorite song because anyone who is somewhat Latino will recognize the song and start dancing cumbia. The song lyrics talks about how a man could never forget this special girl because of the love they share.
Jazz, a music considered truly ‘American’; a mix of African-American rhythms such as ragtime, blues and gospel, has also been interpreted by the community, ingrained with their own style, their own sabor. Mexican Americans and Jazz have combined so well, that some good bands have been formed and there is a Texas Jazz Festival being held every year, which has been promoted and planned with the participation of Latinos to a great extent. This has been possible thanks to the flexibility of these people, who have opened their arms –and their ears- to the new sounds and who have found ways to make them their
They are passed down, interpreted different ways by each person that hears them, and can change the entire course of someone’s life. Music can have the same the same impact. In the 1920’s, Jazz and the blues became increasingly popular because of the freeing feeling young people got from listening and dancing to it. The new sound was shunned by the older generation because of the ““vulgarity” and “depravity” (and the “moral disasters” it supposedly inspired), but many in the younger generation loved the freedom they felt on the dance floor.” (History.com Staff) This type of music has lasted through almost a hundred years now, and still brings people the same freeing feeling it did when it was first discovered. Jazz is a type of music that is improvised.
