Jazz Terminology of the Week

1. Bebop: the style of jazz developed by young players in the early 40s, particularly Parker, Gillespie, Kenny Clarke, Charlie Christian and Bud Powell.  Characteristic stressed instrumental ability expressed through rapid, busy, chord-progression-driven improvisations using irregular, syncopated phrasing with many tentions and aliterations. Small groups were favored, ground beat was moved from the bass drum to the ride cymbal and the string bass, and the rhythmic feel was more flowing. 

2. Walking Bass: an energetic bass line featuring four even beats per bar, usually serving as the rhythmic foundation for the jazz ensemble
