Jazz | History homework help

Write a paragraph in P.I.E. format describing the musical features that make jazz different than other popular styles.  This paragraph can include the general musical features associated with beat, harmony, rhythm, and melody in addition to new instrumental sounds and vocal blues sounds imitated by early jazz instrumentalists.  Since this is a paragraph, you’ll need to pick the best examples rather than including all of them.  Use the summary outline from the last class session as a guide as to what you should include.  If you missed the last class session or need additional review, please use this link.


This is the revieww :

Features that make jazz different from previous popular styles

  • Syncopation
  • Swing 8th notes
  • Improvisation 
  • Extended harmony – chords containing pitches beyond a triad


Many of the instruments found in jazz can also be found in other popular styles but here are some instrumental sounds that are more common to jazz:

  • Muted sounds (cup, straight, harmon, plunger)
  • Stride piano
  • Walking bass
  • Comping (piano)


Vocal blues sounds imitated by early jazz instrumentalists.  These sounds have found their way into other popular styles such as country, rhythm & blues, and rock ‘n’ roll so while there were unique to blues and jazz, that is no longer the case.

  • Slow vibrato
  • Fast vibrato
  • Terminal vibrato
  • Smear
  • Scoop
  • Drop-off
  • Doit
