What is Jazz???


The existence does not depend on thought.

It is where you choose to place your silence, which converts sound into music.

Sound and silence make music.

Sometimes when my solo, I do not play anything.

Just schedule blocks of silence.

The notes are an afterthought.

Silence is what makes music sexy.

Silence is cool.


-Nicholas Payton

A type of music of black American origin which emerged at the beginning of the 20th century, characterized by improvisation, syncopation, and usually a regular or forceful rhythm. Brass and woodwind instruments and piano are particularly associated with jazz, although guitar and occasionally violin are also used; styles include Dixieland, swing, bebop, and free jazz. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1lrUF6Az70
