Jazz: the American legacy to Western music.

    Jazz is considered to be the only truly American music genre. African Americans living in the Midwest combined the diverse rhythms of their ancestors with musical instruments from the European heritage of white Americans. The resulting music--jazz--became a cultural phenomenon that has spread around the globe through history to influence the modern music we hear on the radio today.

 

   We have learnt many aspects of Jazz: how it was originated and evolved, the different influences it had not only in past periods but also in nowadays music. In order to improve our knowledge about the topic and taking into consideration the information we have read in the "scoops" the students have to write a brief essay about one of the topics which have been dealt in class. A personal opinion have to be added at the end of the exercise. Deadline: June the 15th

 

  Regards
