As one of America's most respected art forms, jazz music got it start in the late 19th century and early 20th century as American and European classical music was mixed with African and slave, folk songs. These songs have a special rhythm that feels a little bit off, called syncopation. Since it's inception jazz has the broadest amounts interpretations, out of all the genres that are why we have defined some criteria on why we picked the musicians we did!
Criteria: Artists are judged by the influence of their music, by their artistic skills and inspiration, by the greatness of the music that they helped create, and the contributions that they made to that music.
