All About Hip Jazz Bob

In the beginning, the Jazz genre wasn’t received with open arms. The older generation didn’t understand the rhythm and flow of this genre. They also believed that it could negatively impact young people.

However, as they thought they had stopped the jazz movement and quenched the fire for good, bebop musicians explored harmonies that take harmony through a complex symphony of altered and extended chords.

The birth of Bebop

The name “bebop” originates from the sound of nonsense syllables that scat singers improvised in vocal jazz performances.

Bebop was born from a need for the upcoming generation to expand the creative possibilities of Jazz and increase its dynamism beyond the usual. It features compositions characterized by a fast tempo and dynamic chord progressions. The rapid chord and key changes are based on the harmonic structural combination. While focusing on faster fast tempos and frequent leaping notes, bebop came to life in the mid-40s.

Influences of Bebop

Some of the typical composer-performers who were most influential to bebop are alto sax player Charlie Parker whose music style was influenced by the swing era. Pianists like Bud Powell and Mary Lou Williams and drummers such as Kenny Clarke and Art Blakey.

The classic bebop combination was a mix of the saxophone, trumpet, double bass, drums and piano. This format was used and made famous by Parker and Gillespie in the 1940s during groups and recording. Sometimes, its augmentation was from an extra saxophonist or guitarist while occasionally adding other horns and strings. It could also include dropping an instrument and leaving only a quartet.

The fine collection – Hip Jazz Bop

Soon after the 1201 Music decided that it was time to create a fine collection of musical series that everyone could enjoy. They drew inspiration from Nat hentof and Alan Bates productions and created a masterpiece. It wasn’t a far cry from the original but Hip Jazz Bop didn’t also lose the unique sound of Bebop.

The album opens with Howard McGhee blowing some Miles-associated tones and Jimmy Cobbs on the drums. The bass support comes from G. Tucker, while Junior Mance owns the piano solo beautifully.

As opposed to the usual heavily arranged music in Jazz, Hip Jazz Bop plays composition melodies accompanied by a rhythm section, a section where the performers can improvise a solo. Then, they return to the tune at the end of the composition.

Many critics will tell you that the artists included are part of the gurus that have created the most nuanced performances. Therefore, this beautifully compiled Hip Jazz-Bop series comprises 20 compact discs of influential recordings packaged to attract the younger listeners who appreciate Jazz.

This fine compilation highlights musicians that recorded for Black Lion from the ’40s to the ’70s. Just like most samplers, the CD showcases the newcomer to several new artists and also offers variety and contrast for fans that have been there the longest.

Although this genre was born a while ago, more recently, hip-hop artists cite bebop as an influence on their rhythm and rap style.
