I've read some of the definitions here and some idiots have the cheek to call this filth 'music
' and even bigger idiots have said that gangsta rap
ISN'T the greatest form of music ever created (I know true music fans, some fools really do think like this.) All 3 of the jazz 'songs
' I have heard it doesn't even have any lyrics
? How can that poor excuse for music if you can't hear the artist tell a beautiful story from the street about the bitch he banged last night?
My teacher used to like jazz and that asshole made me learn stuff so I know jazz is shit. I work in McDonalds now so that I never have to worry about learning or thinking ever again. Jazz 'music' has NO beat
and some of it isn't even made by machines that make a constant, mind numbing 'bip bop' for real music listeners to get down to.
Rap was invented by my fellow brothers so if you prefer any other type of music other than rap that means you're a racist white cracker that needs to be burned like the bird shit you are!
Have you noticed that they never play jazz on MTV
? That is because MTV only plays the top 40 which means they only play good music
. Only old people that were alive when we evolved from snakes listen to this dribble because they are ashamed that good music like rap didn't exist in the dinosaurious ages.
This is how every jazz song sounds like "KEEP ROLLIN', ROLLIN', ROLLIN', ROLLIN'" That isn't music! That is crap! Go get some Ja Rule
you old pensioners.
Go listen to your crappy Jazz, Blues or whatever you call it if you wish to remain a fool. Rap is the only true music with soul because it has lyrics that speak from the heart and tell us a tale. ('Soul' 'music' should be called Soul-less music. ZING!)
The only truth left in music.
Jazz... man. I wish people actually appreciated music for what it does to you mentally, and not what the singer does for you sexually.
If you gotta ask, you'll never know.
-Louis Armstrong, jazz trumpeter.
To African Americans in the late nineteenth century, one literal sound of freedom was that of the military marching bands of the American Civil War. This music, combined with the Ragtime and blues styles that developed some time later, evolved to form one of the truly indigenous art forms of the United States. The "jas," or the Creole brothel, is thought to have been the birthplace as well as the namesake of the new sound of Jazz. Early traditional Jazz combined the complexity of Ragtime, the tight arrangement of marching band music, and the inventive, free spirit of the blues. It incorporated structured improvisations at its center while the band maintained a swing. The sound evolved dramatically throughout the twentieth century in various forms: from the New York City Bebop of Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker to the Free Jazz of the Art Ensemble of Chicago; from the Fusion of Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock to the Hard Bop of Art Blakey. But throughout Jazz's great explorations, it has kept improvisation at its center, and as such it has always remained a music of freedom.

the coolest, freest, and yet deepest music humans have ever made
Listen to those crazy cats wailing out that sexy jazz.
The greatest, and yet least appreciated genre of music today among the general public.
The original spelling of the word was "jass."
A form of western music involving the fusion of traditional european and african (rhythmic) styles. Jazz is quite syncopated and fairly easily improvisable. Jazz could be considered a descendant of Ragtime, and a predecesor of Swing, Funk, and even Rock. Jazz originated from New Orleans as early as 1895, and remains one of the most popular forms of music today.

Jazz...the greatest musical genre there ever was, and ever will be. This music will always be the greatest. Jazz, along with Blues, and swing music, are all that is left of North American culture. Now, all that is left, is that shitty rap "music", if you even dare to call it that.
Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Sam Cooke...etc...
