  Bebop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bebop or bop is a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos and improvisation based on harmonic structure rather than melody.

Many of the bebop standards are based on the chord progressions of other popular songs, such as "I Got Rhythm", "Cherokee", or "How High The Moon".
