About Playlist

After the overflow of the first types of improvised Jazz, notably in New-Orleans, came the "Big Bands" era, characterised by throughly written arrangements, very strict discipline and a lack of room left for soloists. This is how Jazz left the constricts of the Afro-American community to become the music for everyone, thanks to dazzling compositions and orchestrations from Duke Ellington, Count Basie and their contenders. Despite the Bebop revolution that challenged their dominance the big bands have managed to stick around with new generations of musicians such as Gil Evans or Quincy Jones. Let's take a look at some great Jazz from the big bands.
