Smoth JAZZ
Smooth jazz (“soft jazz”) is a kind of jazz that appeared in the USA in the 1960-1970s, which was significantly influenced by such directions as rhythm and blues, funk, rock and pop. Sometimes translated as “light jazz” or “smooth jazz”.
The movement began in the early 1970s as a fusion. Some jazz musicians, such as Quincy Jones, began to fuse instrumental virtuosity and improvisation of traditional jazz with modern, electronic sensitivity. The instrument that has become the most widely associated with this direction is the saxophone.
A typical example of the genre from the 70s can be considered the composition “Tell Me a Bedtime Story” - Quincy Jones, from the 90s - “Between the Sheets” - Fourplay.
In the 90s of the 20th century, a trend in the genre of secondary-background music for rooms arose in the genre, which led to the emergence of many monotonous, template-made tracks.
The modern direction of smooth jazz is more adult, sensual music, designed for the broadcasting format.
