Styles include Be-Bop, Swing, Dixieland, Fusion, Free jazz etc.

One of the precursors to Funk, others include Blues and Soul . Funk of course gave way to more contempary forms of music like rap and techno.

Jazz is characterised by improvisation where musicians express themselves through their instruments.
