  Jazz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At the root of jazz is the blues, the folk music of former enslaved Africans in the U.S. South and their descendants, heavily influenced by West African cultural and musical traditions, that evolved as fl musicians migrated to the cities.
In addition, it could be argued that jazz would not exist without both instruments invented or developed by Europeans (the trumpet, saxophone, trombone, double bass, etc.) and the previous work of Europeans in music theory, which was explored in different ways by jazz musicians, such as increased use of the seventh chord and extended chords.
Early jazz influences found their first mainstream expression in the marching band and dance band music of the day, which was the standard form of popular concert music at the turn of century.

 Jazz royalty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jazz royalty is a term that reflects the many great jazz musicians who have some sort of royal title in their names or nicknames.
Oliver was known as "King Oliver" in Chicago, and still regarded as the jazz king as late as 1925, when Louis Armstrong returned to Chicago from New York City.
Many other jazz greats had nicknames that were not royalty-related, but some consider them to be part of the royalty anyway -- purely because their skill as musicians merits a place on the list with the best:

 Definition of Swing music
Swing music, also known as swing jazz, is a form of jazz music that solidified as a distinctive style during the 1930s, in the United States.
Swing is distinguished primarily by a strong rhythm section, usually consisting of double bass and drums, medium to fast tempo, and the distinctive "swing" that's common to all forms of jazz.
As jazz in general, and swing jazz in particular, began to grow in popularity throughout the States, a number of changes occurred in the culture that surrounded the music.

Hancock, one of three artists in town this weekend who were named "Jazz Masters" recently by the National Endowment for the Arts (vocalist Nancy Wilson and guitarist Jim Hall are the others), has joined Holland and DeJohnette as an offshoot of a celebration in Chicago for Hancock's 64th birthday.
It was, by consensus, among the greatest jazz combos that ever was, producing such classic albums as "E.S.P.," "Miles Smiles," and "Nefertiti," while radically expanding and liberating existing approaches to rhythm and harmony.
Although he was given the prestigious "Jazz Master" honor earlier this year by the National Endowment for the Arts, he tries not to think about it.

In addition to organist McGriff, the group includes Wayne Boyd, guitar and vocals, Jerry Weldon, saxophone, and Don Williams, drums.
His style has been described as being "somewhere between the jazz of Jimmy Smith and the RandB of Booker T. and the MGs." With his winning mix of blues, swing, funk, and gospel-derived sounds, McGriff is an undisputed giant of the Hammond B-3 organ.
Born into jazz royalty, so to speak, Monk, who seemed to spend all his free time at his father's recording sessions, began to secretly play drums at age 13 after quietly studying Art Blakey, Roy Haynes, Frankie Dunlop, Billy Higgins, Ben Riley and other jazz greats who recorded with his dad.

Armstrong had a powerful rival in Buddie Petit, who many ranked higher than young Armstrong in the 1919-1922 period.
Armstrong's great respect and affection for Oliver was probably a factor in never claiming Oliver's kingship, although at the urging of his wife Lil Hardin Armstrong Louis Armstrong was billed as the "world's greatest jazz trumpeter", rendering Oliver's title more ceremonial than a claim of supremecy.
Mamie Smith was billed as the "Queen of the Blues"; Bessie Smith outdid her with the billing "Empress of the Blues".

 Peterson's magic still astounding
Gradually, the bass takes the melodic lead, with the drums lilting the rhythm; next, Peterson's right hand flies off extemporaneously, cascading through melodic and chord changes, now supported by the guitar, whose turn to solo is at hand.
In tribute to the late John Lewis (Modern Jazz Quartet), Peterson played "Prelude to JL," a delicate theme, as gentle as Lewis; later, in the concert's second hourlong set, the quartet honored the Jazz Quartet with a rollicking version of "Bags' Groove."
Peterson may not be the two-fisted piano powerhouse he once was, but on this gig, his quartet is blowing up a storm of straight-ahead, no foolishness jazz -- and more power to it.
