Jeremiah Hicks's insight:

This is what a typical small ensemble would look like in the early thirties and the instruments that they played were also unique.

Jazz is a style of music that spread in popularity like wild fire in the 1920s and virtually redefined culture in that time frame.

he minor "dog-fight" interlude from the original march leads into a variation on the trio that provides a backdrop for Armstrong's high-register trumpet fireworks. While the arrangement is an interesting attempt to transform a New Orleans band standard into a solo vehicle, the effort isn't entirely successful, and it certainly falls short of the expectations we had from the introd

Jeremiah Hicks's insight:

Times were tough living during the 30’s for my folks and me; it was hard to live to make a living. And being a musician during this time only lightened a quarter of the load seeing as how people loved the genre I am most accounted for performing. My life was forever changed when the depression hit. All the money I had ever made was in my bank account and when word was sent to go retrieve it the money was no where to be found. At first I said to myself this is a joke and our government wouldn’t allow this to happen. “YEAH” so much for that statement. With no support from anyone I had no clue of how I would even begin to take care of my hungry and in definite need of support family. My wife worked sometimes when she could while I would travel and do gigs she would watch our children. The gigs and shows brought in a substantial amount for me to support our family and pay bills and so fourth and have a savings which was great. But what was I suppose to do when the savings was gone and there was no money for me to turn to. It felt as if my life was over. All I had in reality was God to turn to in this depression. It really rocked my family’s faith and my own. At times there was no knowledge of where our next meal would come from or where I would make my next dime. If I could have guessed these events happening lord knows I would’ve stored all my money in some safe in no mans land because life is rough. My wife and I couldn’t accept the failure within our family even though the occurring events weren’t even our own faults. We had to press forward with prize and purpose. I also hated to see my children so hurt and hungry It brought tears to my eyes when they would ask what we were eating and I couldn’t conjure of the courage to tell them there is a possibility that we wont be eating at all. When it came to this point I had to find food for them I was desperate to support my family they hungered so it was a must to provide for them. At times I did have to resort to killing squirrels or fishing in rivers or streams just to have food for them. And surprisingly the food wasn’t that bad if you ask me. I handled it pretty well. I wouldn’t call myself a gourmet chef but it kept my family and me from starving. And I pretty sure they had not one care in the world on the type of meat it was as long as they were getting fed and not starving. It often came across me and my wife’s mind when we would get our money or if it would ever be returned. And I guess the answer is no. I wish it could’ve been a better way for this all to have gone was it just greed I mean they took the money innocent people worked for and it just disappeared from our lives leaving us no way to survive. My children constantly wondered about our living conditions, which weren’t so peachy you would say. We didn’t lose our home because the bank really couldn’t afford taking the home because they would than have to resale the home to make profit. But we had no electricity at times and no gas, which was horrible. Luckily a wood fire place came in great use during this time. The car that our family had also acquired was basically obsolete we really couldn’t drive it because of the small amount of money we had if any at all. This is just some of the hardships I can explain to you and let you know how it really was for me. It made me a better stronger person. I also have the faith that I’m able to bring my family through any trial now . Because confidently I can say that nothing was and ever will be tougher than the depression ben brought upon me. I’m an individual just like you normal as can be but the lack of resources and having to really create a survival tactic created something in me that will never go to waste. And I will hold it with me for years to come. My family is assured that they will never be hurt without me pressing to do something to avoid it from happening. Never will my life be the same my family and I have drawn closer to each other because of these horrible events and I’m here to say that the depression was very horrid b

Jazz Music
Jeremiah Hicks's insight:

The array of Jazz music is present in the Jazz fests who played music with African elements that did not sound like Jazz music. One thing we all should look out for is the musical elements in Jazz that stand out such as the complex rhythm, and the chromatic chordal harmony or chord progressions typical for the Jazz Music.

Jeremiah Hicks's insight:

Jazz music has developed to the point the place basic signature of the model has minimized into an influential aspect. For example, the Jazz music of the eighty’s digital music of IDM which stand for Clever Dance Music the place such artists like Bjourk is understood for. The drum and bass is one other type of digital that does not use the standard improvisation that is without doubt one of the key components of Jazz music.
