i think jazz really developed out of show tunes and blues while rock came mostly from blues and american folk music. what we think of as "art" jazz now really developed side-by-side with r&b and rock. i mean early swing definitely gave jazz it's beginnings, but it's hardly comparable to what happened when bebop developed. before bebop jazz was really just pop music.

jazz was already there alongside the show tunes, but the show tunes and their composers definitely had a huge impact on refining and adding to what we know as jazz harmony. it can be argued that jazz had three prominent streams of influence in the beginning: ragtime, blues and klezmer.

jazz really was pop music up until rock and roll came along. bebop was the beginning of jazz for musicians, basically. big band, stride, boogie woogie and 'vocal jazz' were still popular though.

yes i agree with that. the same thing is happening with rock now, meaning that it has diversified to the point of "rock" being an utterly meaningless term, become a lot smarter and more artistic, and faded from the mainstream. idk if it will ever be respected enough to be considered worthy of college-level study, but the complexity is there for sure.

rock music directly came from blues and american country type stuff

jazz came sorta from classical but more specifically ragtime, and was developed mostly in the south in the beginning

Yeah i would agree with that sniper, although my course is 'jazz and contemporary music', which means we study the history of rock and pop, but not at all in performance and theory. Makes sense, seeing as most of our theory really came from jazz and classical anyway.

Prog im not so sure about classical really being that important in the fruition of jazz, it was already established before classical styles really had an influence, and even then it was through the broadway composers mostly (not jazz in the literal sense).

Best jazz is either this or Mingus. I never hugely got into Kind of Blue or Silent Way but this just jams so profusely.

Fabulous, Impossible, unbelievable. Drums are like thunder of God, and Miles Davis's trumpet is sounding Dead people for Judgment Day.
Here is the music of the third millennium. Timeless because so futuristic.
