    THE JAZZ BEAT CAFE: featuring: This is jazz

    in Music

    Bebop or bop is a style of jazz developed in the early to mid-1940s in the United States, which features songs characterized by a fast tempo, complex chord progressions with rapid chord changes and numerous changes of key, instrumental virtuosity, and improvisation based on a combination of harmonic structure, the use of scales and occasional references to the melody. It was developed in the early and mid-1940s. This style of jazz ultimately became synonymous with modern jazz, when both categories reached a certain final maturity in the 1960s. Bebop developed as the younger generation of jazz musicians aimed to counter the popular, dance-oriented swing style with a new, non-danceable music that was more of a "musician's music" that demanded close listening. As bebop was no longer a dance music, it enabled the musicians to play at faster tempos. Bebop musicians explored advanced harmonies, complex syncopation, altered chords, extended chords, chord substitutions, asymmetrical phrasing, and intricate melodies. Bebop groups used rhythm sections in a way that expanded their role. Whereas the key ensemble of the Swing era was the huge Big Band, often supplemented by a string section, and playing heavily arranged tunes, the classic bebop group was the small combo that consisted of saxophone (alto or tenor), trumpet, piano, double bass and drums. 1 Be-Bop 6:17 Dizzy Gillespie 2 I've Got You Under My Skin 3:34 Charlie Parker 3 Cotton Tail 3:26 Ella Fitzgerald 4 I Get a Kick Out of You (Remastered) 2:50 Sonny Criss 5 The Inch Worm 6:12 John Coltrane Quartet 6 Broadway 6:46 Dexter Gordon 7 Groovin' High (Remastered) 6:22 Lou Donaldson 8 With a Song In My Heart (Remastered) 7:55 Sonny Clark 9 Ah!
