Jazz Primer for Rock People

| July 19, 2010

Written by Craig Matthews in oculus magazine, this jazz primer aims to supply basic rudimentary facts and trends in the history of jazz, point readers in some directions, and give some suggestions of some avenues to explore. Various types of jazz music (Blues, Swing, Funk, Cool, and much more) across different historical periods (up to 1975) were categorized in this primer, in the interest of space and with the risk of oversimplified as author noted.
