Jazz is a music genre that generally relies on the improvisation of one or more musicians. The roots of jazz can be traced back to the late 19th and early 20th century, with influences from African American music, European classical music, and Ragtime.

One of the defining features of the genre is the swing, which gives the music its characteristic groove. This is created by the rhythm section, which consists of the drums, bass, and piano. The lead melodic line is often played by the trumpet or saxophone.

Jazz has been a highly influential genre, with its influence being felt in other genres such as rock and roll, soul, and hip hop. Jazz musicians have always been at the forefront of innovation, experimenting with new sounds and ideas.
