The impact that Louis Armstrong had on jazz music and the Jazz Age was so immaculate that it transformed the genre of this new music for many generations to come. Through his multitudes of different performances during the twenties, he developed new ways and techniques to enhance his playing. Performances were never lacking for Louis he showcased solos, as well as in bands, which expanded his popularity throughout the country. Beginning his career and influence in the twenties, he started off with his solo performances, exhibiting his incredible trumpet and cornet playing as well as adding some singing in with the mix. These bountiful performances allowed him to become invited by his mentor “King” Oliver to be a part of his Creole Jazz Band.
Jazz music has adapted to keep up with the times and influence many other songs people listen to today. Music in general would not be what it is without Louis Armstrong. Armstrong added the flamboyant improvisations and solos jazz that made it what it is today. Armstrong changed music though the course of his career and has kept his influence on it and popularity to this day. Armstrong grew up an average kid in a poor family, but he had a lot of ambition.
By doing this, the film will be flowing and it can also help condense the time that the whole film is played, which can help save a lot of time to the audience because sometimes they don’t have time to watch a long film. The film will not look like it is broken up into different parts of the scenes as people are watching it, but instead every piece will be put together, so it can look like they are watching a real movie and most importantly, it will look professional. By playing the live orchestra right before the film starts and again after it ends, it can help the audience reflect how the variety of classical music of live orchestra fits in with every part of the scene in the film, what the history behinds film is, and how it relates to the theme of the entire film and the outside world. The live orchestra needs to be played at the end of the film, since there is a little of it in the beginning, so it can help the audience regain the memories of how the live orchestra sound. It is very hard to picture and remember how the live orchestra sound by listening to it only once.
There was a lot more instruments for the next songs that were to be played. Some of these instruments included shakers or markas, gongs-------. I wasn’t a fan of the songs that they played because there was so much going on at one time. Some instruments would play and go in and out but when they all played at once I liked that the best. The first song they played was carribean like and very upbeat.
Swing was first introduced by black musicians. Some of them included Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, and Jimmy Lunceford. Interestingly enough, because of the popularity of the music, African Americans were able to produce music and bring it into white society for them to listen to. These African American musicians also influenced many of the white musicians as well. White jazz musicians had taken inspiration from black jazz music for many years, but because of swing, they became even more deeply devoted to integrating this music to blacks and whites.
All of this put together brings attention to the importance, the happiness, that real and live music has on people’s lives. Which happens a lot in real life, since people usually have a special connection to music especially when it is from someone they used to admire. Also since A Mighty Wind is a satire to real documentaries the director makes it a point to mimic real documentaries, so by mainly using diegetic sound they can make this film truer to the structure of an actual documentary. Thus achieving a better film that follows guidelines to make the film easier to understand and keep up
When you hear Rock and Roll, you hear the catchy words, the upbeat music, and energy that comes from that form of music. That is what made it popular, and that popularity allowed that form of music to gradually change a nation. Rock and Roll was able to change society by slowly changing how people acted towards blacks. Society affected rock and roll as well because without the challenges segregation made, rock and roll would have not been developed. Society impacted rock and roll in many ways because we had segregation during those years.
Unlike classical music, in which string instruments always plays the major role, the instruments of jazz music are more equally diverse. In the ensemble I felt that the brass instruments and the drum set totally led the entire performance. The drum was definitely the soul of the Jazz to which every other instrument had to go with and obey. Without the drum, Jazz would lose its rhythm—as well as its spirit. Other instruments such as piano, guitar, and double bass all of which were rarely used as the major tones during the classical music ensemble, but in the jazz ensemble they were all played
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

With the creation of "clear channel" and network radio, homes all over America can enjoy music and entertainments together for the first time. Back then, getting a broadcast on air is already a big hassle. Today pretty much anyone could open up their own station threw internet.

Jazz brought about a new form of music, and the artists allowed people to let loose and find a way to express themselves better. Of all the influential musicians in the time period, there were none better than Jelly Roll Morton, Joe King Oliver, Sidney Bichet, Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington. Each artist has their own story, and their own reason for the end of their career. Some lived their life out in fame and glory, while others were shown the more dramatic side of life. Their upbringing may differ, but they all had one thing in common; a lasting contribution for not only the Jazz Era, but for all other generations and genres of music to come.
