 Two Types of Jazz
Of course, Chip and other purists will be quick to point out there are a lot more than two types of jazz.  I know that.  There’s Latin jazz and other forms of jazz from around the world.  New Orleans jazz is just a little different than Chicago jazz and on and on it goes.
For me, the two types of jazz are classic jazz and the new Smooth Jazz that you hear on most commercial jazz radio stations like WNUA.
I am a fan of classic jazz.  For me, this includes all of the forms of jazz I mentioned before in that list of jazz genres.  Any jazz that has horns and sounds like something you would hear from Gillespie, Davis or Parker is classic jazz as far as I am concerned.

  Jazz
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.

 Electronic Music Directory
Although several other dance music genres can be described in such terms, techno has a distinct sound that aficionados can pick out very easily.
Typically added to this foundation are electronically generated sounds and samples of music such as jazz, blues and synth pop, as well as additional percussion.
Techno and trance, the two primary dance music genres that branched off from house in the late 1980s and early 1990s respectively, can share this basic beat infrastructure, but usually eschew house's live-music-influenced feel and fl or Latin music influences in favor of more synthetic sound sources and approach.

 24 Resources on Musical Genres - Listible!
As the genre evolved, the music split into a number of different styles, from the speedy, hard-hitting rhythms of be-bop and the laid-back, mellow harmonies of cool jazz to the jittery, atonal forays of free jazz and the earthy grooves of soul jazz...
In popular idioms it is a term used to describe or refer to free jazz movements but the meaning remains the same: techniques of expression that are new, innovative and radically different from the tradition or the mainstream.
Unlike jazz, which demands your utmost attention, easy listening slips into the background, which is the very reason many critics and listeners dismissed the music as nothing more than disposible fluff.

 Filmtracks: The Notebook (Aaron Zigman)
An additional aspect of the album not to be overlooked is the faithful inclusion of the period songs used in the film.
Several well known 1940's era jazz pieces from Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, and Jimmy Durante highlight the frivolous actions of the younger couple in the flashbacks, and they instill the sense of excitement that the score fails to achieve.
Overall, the Zigman score is both pleasant and nostalgic, but the jazz songs really do steal the show with their vibrance and diversity.
