Notes

Probably the earliest origins of jazz could be traced back to African-American slaves, who played African rhythms on Congo Square,sang "work" songs to lessen the burden of the hard work and gospel songs,where they praised the Lord.They soon invented the blues,where they expressed how they felt.They started "ragging" familiar marshes and songs they heard, creating the ragtime.It has elements of syncopated rhythms,influence of classical music and marches,and polyrhythms used in African music
