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.
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 is often difficult to define, but improvisation is unquestionably a key element of the form.

At Jazz Standard, on Friday, December 13, I was not surprised that the Ziegler Quintet was in rare form, especially with the addition of Guest Artist, Jazz Great, Paquito D'Rivera, who intermittently accompanied and sometimes took the theme, on either soprano or alto saxophone or on clarinet.
