Learning to Dig Jazz Music

It has been said that jazz is America’s greatest contribution to music. It mixes the powerful rhythm of

African traditions with elements of European classical music. The beginnings of jazz music are a bit

unclear, but many people believe it originated in New Orleans during the late 1800s. New Orleans was a

melting pot where local tribes mixed with immigrants who came from Africa and Europe to form a new,

unique culture.

Jazz has several elements which set it apart from other styles of music. Compared to rock music, jazz is

more complex and versatile. Whereas rock bands typically consists of a drummer, some guitarists, and a

singer, jazz bands can be big or small and they are made up from a wide variety of instruments. Another

thing which sets jazz apart from other forms of music is improvisation. Musicians start with a basic

structure, perhaps a few chords, and then they decide what to play in the moment. Therefore, even if the

same songs are repeated, you can be certain that no two jazz concerts are the same.

Over the years, many sub-genres of jazz came about. Ragtime is one of the first styles that came about,

and it consists mainly of upbeat piano compositions. Dixieland Jazz started in the 1920s and it incorporated

blue music and brass bands. Next came the Big Band era, which showcased groups with 10 or more

musicians playing different instruments. In the Bebop era of the 1940s, jazz musicians returned to smaller

groups of four to six musicians, but they started playing far more complex melodies.

If you are just becoming interested in jazz, you should start by listening to the works of some of its

masters. Louis Armstrong is considered one of the grandfathers of jazz, as he helped to spread jazz to the

masses in the 1920s. Armstrong is perhaps best-known today for singing the classic song “What a

Wonderful World”, but in his prime, he was a talented bandleader and an incredible trumpet player. Charlie

Parker was all the rage during the bebop age, as every saxophone player was trying to imitate him. Miles

Davis is another pioneering jazzman who everyone should check out, as he was always changing his style.

During his long career, Davis won nine Grammy awards. Although jazz music is an acquired taste, once

you begin to appreciate it, it is like a fine wine that gets better with age.

Question 36. Why was New Orleans a good place for jazz to start?

A. It was the only place where music was sold in the US.

B. There were people from many cultures living there.

C. The city was famous for European classical music.

D. Only local tribes were allowed to play music there.

Question 37. What is the second paragraph mainly about?

A. Some of the most famous jazz musicians

B. The things that make jazz music special

C. A few jazz classics that everyone should hear

D. How readers can learn to play jazz music

Question 38. Which of the following best describes Bebop jazz?

A. A small group of jazz musicians playing difficult songs B. A talented jazz piano player playing a happy melody

C. A large jazz band of 15 musicians playing a catchy song D. A foreign jazz band playing easy songs with a singer

Question 39. Which of the following best matches the meaning of the word “improvisation” in

paragraph 2?

A. Playing louder than other people B. Playing every note exactly the same

C. Playing an instrument very quickly D. Playing notes that match how you feel

Question 40. The word “they” in paragraph 2 refers to ……………

A. chords B. jazz bands C. singers D. musicians

Question 41. Louis Armstrong ………

A. won many Grammy awards B. was a very famous Bebop musician

C. introduced many people to jazz music D. could sing well but couldn’t play instruments

Question 42. How does the author seem to feel about jazz?

A. He thinks it could take several listens before people like it.

B. He doubts anyone that is young will enjoy it.

C. He believes it will soon be more popular than it ever was.
