Jazz Terminology of the Week

1. Hard Bop: "Hard Bop was at the forefront of jazz and went through its most concentrated growth and development from 1951-1958. Hard Bop was, in part, a reaction to cool jazz. Many jazz musicians felt that with cool jazz, the music had become "too classical" in nature, that is, too European (not enough 'blues'). Hard Bop was a return to music that was more Afro-centric and more blues based" (from Jazz in America). 

2. Blow: Blow simply is the jazzman's term for play any instrument, but the term is most associated with horn players. 

Example: Maaaan, Satchmo can really blow!
