They were attracted by the freedom and artistic nature of it. When white popular musicians started to integrate the Bebop style with their own music, it became that much more popular, not only in America, but around the world. Jazz became a way to unify cultures through music. It helped to bring down barriers. It reflected a new time in America, one where cultures became more integrated, but still had room to be individual.
It also meant that you could appreciate a solo or improvisation in a lot more detail. This meant jazz was appreciated a lot more once people realised how amazing and talented jazz players were. Music technology gave us the chance to upgrade our instruments and music to a new form also meaning we could have access to more instruments and choice for our music. The use of the radio has also helped to distribute jazz when it started but also all of the changes throughout the years.
Although the history of Rock Music and its origins don’t paint a pretty picture, the genre has changed many people’s lives, either physically or emotionally. It is still the most popular genre of music out in the world right now. Rock still has a lead in the current marketplace with many bands from the 70’s 80’s and 90’s still actively touring, bringing in many people to see them perform.(Mckeen William,”Rock Music”) If it continues to go down this path, Rock Music’s popularity will never fade; if anything else, it will continue to evolve in many interesting

New Orleans became the first true jazz centre. • This encouraged the popularity and growth of jazz music. • Jazz went from only playing in New Orleans to becoming a staple of the America airwaves, dance halls and homes” • The 1930’s brought a new style of jazz “big band swing”.
This amendment finally gave them the right they thought almost impossible to achieve. It was first drafted as the federal women suffrage amendment and took many decades of struggles (almost forty years) to be ratified (“Nineteenth Amendment”). Senator S. C. Pomeroy of Kansas was the first one to introduce it in 1868. In 1920, it was finally ratified by three- fourths of the states and in Congress (“Women Get the Vote”). It was a lengthy struggle, but it was a great success for women since they proved men how equally important and intelligent they were and this was significantly acknowledged with the 19th amendment that clearly prohibited the denial of vote based on the sex of the
They had many hits throughout the 1970s and the band assisted in making funk music a successful genre, with an even broader audience. A different group of musicians then began to further develop this genre. New ideas were significantly made by George Clinton, with his two bands; Parliament and Funkadelic. The Parliament group emphasized using horns whilst Funkadelic emphasized using guitars, but both had a deep, rhythm filled groove. Simultaneously, they formed a new kind of funk sound, greatly influenced by psychedelic rock as well as jazz.
This movement was started in 1848 and it ended in 1920. It continued for quite a long time and women had to face many hardships to fight for their own rights. But the period still could not end up in signing of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. During the whole period of 1920, women had put their emphasis on promoting the status of
Now, I am actually very happy on my decision to attend the concert because it was so good rather I should say it felt so good that I can’t put my experience in words. I have attended some classical concerts in USA and some other genres but this was my first time to attend a Jazz concert. Jazz genre of music uses totally different
Performing jazz is not as easy as it seems, my first jazz performance to audiences from French was a disaster as the tempo of every song is so precise that if you were to miss just a single note, it will ruin the whole song. As time goes by, I then started to understand how jazz arrangement flows, although my knowledge in jazz is not as much, but it is a genre that is worth to spend some time and learn more about. Lately, I noticed that I no longer favour hanging out at the club with loud songs. My lifestyle had changed to spending my time at the jazz bar, listening to some local talents and if I’m lucky enough, I will be able to catch international jazz singers like Tompi from Indonesia. In addition, even my alarm music is a jazz song instead of other loud genres.
Introduction: Oh, the places you’ll go… For centuries, half of the human population has battled for basic human rights and equality. Unfortunately, it was only not long ago when women had a major success, the passing of the 19th amendment, allowing them the right to vote. This newly granted liberty opened the door to many different opportunities for women, including the ability to access safe and legal abortions, to access contraception, to own property, to request a divorce, to a gain in pay equal to that of a man in the same position, and much more. With the continued successes of the movement, there was little to no question as to the possibility of these granted rights being repealed by the government in the future. After all, why would
Men are not any better than women so why should their ideas be more important than ours? Women fought for 100 years. They finally got to vote for the first time in 1920. It was too bad that women had to wait until after the civil war to get serious about changing the law. In my opinion women should have been able to vote all along.
Women’s Suffrage: did or did it not change in America? Alice Paul, a young women fighting for rights, went on a hunger strike in prison to stand up for what she believed in. Paul and other suffragists were arrested and sent to Occoquan Workhouse, in Virginia. These women were fighting for their rights to vote, to be as equal as men.
Jazz has been an influential part of American History since the twentieth century. Jazz was influence prominently by African Americans around 1917. Roger Kamien and Anita Kamien authors of the book Music Appreciation states, “Jazz can be described generally as music rooted in improvisation and characterized by syncopated rhythm, a steady beat, and distinctive tone colors and performance techniques” (Kamien) Within jazz, there are different styles which vary upon location or where they originated in. Some include, “New Orleans style (or Dixieland), swing, bebop, cool jazz, free jazz, and jazz rock” (Kamien).
