Jazz is a music genre that originated at the beginning of the 20th century, arguably earlier, within the African American communities of the Southern United States. Its roots lie in the combining by African-Americans of certain European harmony and form elements, with their existing African-based music. Its African musical basis is evident in its use of blue notes, improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation and the swung note. From its early development until the present day, jazz has also incorporated elements from popular music especially, in its early days, from American popular music.

Jazz is a music genre that originated at the beginning of
the 20th century, arguably earlier, within the African
American communities of the Southern United States. Its
roots lie in the combining by African-Americans of
certain European harmony and form elements, with their
existing African-based music. Its African musical basis is
evident in its use of blue notes, improvisation,
polyrhythms, syncopation and the swung note. From its
early development until the present day, jazz has also
incorporated elements from popular music especially, in
its early days, from American popular music.

As the music has developed and spread around the
world it has, since its early American beginnings, drawn
on many different national, regional and local musical
cultures, giving rise to many distinctive styles: New
Orleans jazz dating from the early 1910s, big band
swing, Kansas City jazz and Gypsy jazz from the 1930s
and 1940s, bebop from the mid-1940s on down through
Afro-Cuban jazz, West Coast jazz, ska jazz, cool jazz,
Indo jazz, avant-garde jazz, soul jazz, modal jazz,
chamber jazz, free jazz, Latin jazz in various forms,
smooth jazz, jazz fusion and jazz rock, jazz funk, loft
jazz, punk jazz, acid jazz, ethno jazz, jazz rap, cyber
jazz, M-Base, nu jazz and other ways of playing the
music.
