Jazz bands for hire

The basis of jazz music is found in European harmonies, mixed with African musical elements and American popular songs. As it spread around the world, it was altered in different countries, each having their own version.  Over the years it has been given different names as well, sometimes being referred to as ragtime, or syncopation. Over 100 years of changes prompted the famous trombonist, J. J. Johnson, to comment, “ Jazz is restless. It won’t stay put and it never will”

These days, jazz has so many components it is difficult to define its make up, but with good jazz bands for hire often it includes swing, improvisation, blues and no fear of trying something new.
