ONE OF MY FAVORITE JAZZ CLUBS IN SWITZERLAND IS IN BASEL CALLED THE BIRD'S EYE.I HAVE BEEN TO THIS CLUB FOR TWO CONCERTS AND HAVE REALLY ENJOYED THE TALENT OF THE BANDS THAT HAVE PLAYED THERE. The music called Jazz was born sometime around 1895 in New Orleans. It combined elements of Ragtime, marching band music and Blues. What differentiated Jazz from these earlier styles was the widespread use of improvisation, often by more than one player at a time. Jazz represented a break from Western musical traditions, where the composer wrote a piece of music on paper and the musicians then tried their best to play exactly what was in the score.In a Jazz piece, the song is often just a starting point or frame of reference for the musicians to improvise around. The song might have been a popular ditty or blues that they didn't compose, but by the time they were finished with it they had composed a new piece that often bore little resemblance to the original song.
- Pros:JAZZ IS ALL GOOD EVEN WHEN YOU ARE SLEEPING
