10/16 & 10/17
Night of Latin Jazz 10/16
Latin jazz is the special kind of traditional jazz but combined with the rhythms of Latin America and then formed into some of the dances like samba or mambo. And most famously, Bossa Nova, being the product of samba and jazz. Bossa Nova is terribly soft and lyrical, though also carries the rhythms of jazz and the demeanor of swing. Many fans refuse to admit that it is part of the Jazz genre but that’s what make it so wonderful.
The most contributed musician into Bossa Nova is Stan Getz, he was playing in Benny Goodman’s Jazz big band, into the fifties, he was famously collaborating and performing with other jazz musicians in the west coast; ever since then, Bossa Nova became more and more known and accepted.
Rhythm Party of the Weekend 10/17
Ever since Swing, Bebop, Cool, Hard Bop then until Free Jazz, the road of jazz revolution transformed from dance music that are accepted widely to what is much more complex in structure, and focus heavily in improvisation and became more and more complicated and academic.
Therefore, jazz from what used to be the ‘popular’ music to the type that less and less people enjoy. Meanwhile, in the sixties, rock music is taking the world by storm, attracting millions of music listeners. The Newport Jazz Festival that were regularly held on Rhode Island in 1969, unprecedently invited rock bands that includes Jeff Beck, Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin and Sly & the Family Stone.
Ever since then, rock became one of the mainstream music genres and some clever jazz musicians had decided to fuse the feature of rock into jazz and then made ‘Fusion’ jazz.
Within the years of history in jazz, more and more composition, creativity, and different attempts are more and more misunderstood by fans and musicians. Many music commentators and critics even excluded the likes of fusion jazz outside of the genre of jazz. Nonetheless, fusion makes jazz full of life and much more energetic.
