Many jazz saxophonists also play clarinet because of the many similarities between the two instruments. The drum set is the instrument central to the rhythm section.

It acts as the motor that drives the group. A drum set can contain a multitude of percussion instruments, but in jazz, it usually consists of only a few parts.

The lowest drum, or bass drum, is played with a pedal. The hi-hat, also played with a pedal, is a duo of small cymbals that crash together. They are used for crisp accents.

The snare drum is played with sticks. Its sound has a sharp attack and sits directly in front of the drummer. In addition, drummers often use two hollow-sounding drums of varying pitches, called a low tom or floor tom and a high tom.

The electric guitar is found as much in jazz as it is in rock music and other styles. Jazz guitarists typically use hollow-body guitars for their clean sounds. Guitars are often used along with, or instead of pianos.

The guitar can be both a "comping" instrument and a soloing instrument. In other words, its six strings can be strummed in order to play chords, or they can be plucked to play melodies.

Because of its range and all of its qualities available, it can practically create the effect of a full band all by itself. With 88 keys, this instrument allows for many harmonic possibilities and is capable of playing very low and very high.

Its role as a jazz instrument alternates between "comping" and soloing. The flexible, voice-like tone of the saxophone has made it a prominent jazz instrument since almost the very beginning of jazz.

Although a member of the woodwind family, the saxophone is actually made out of brass. Its tone is created by blowing into the mouthpiece, on which a reed made out of cane vibrates.

The saxophone family includes the tenor pictured and alto saxophones, which are the most common, and also the soprano and baritone. There are saxophones that are higher than the soprano and lower than the baritone, but they are rare.

The saxophone is a monophonic instrument, which means that it can only play one note at a time. This means its role is usually to play the melody, or "the head," of a song, and also to solo. The standard small combo usually limits itself to one trumpet and one saxophone at times augmented by a second saxophone or a trombone.

Typical horns found in a big jazz band include 4—5 trumpets , 5—6 woodwind instruments usually saxophones , and 3—4 trombones. The banjo has been used in jazz since the earliest jazz bands.

There are three common types of banjo, the plectrum banjo , tenor banjo , and cello banjo. Over time, the four-stringed tenor banjo became the most common banjo used in jazz.

Jazz bass is the use of the double bass or bass guitar , to improvise accompaniment and solos in a jazz band. Players began using the double bass in jazz in the s, to supply the low-pitched walking basslines.

Beginning in the early s, some jazz bass players began to use the electric bass guitar in place of the double bass. Jazz drumming is the art of playing percussion, usually the drum set , in jazz styles ranging from s-style Dixieland jazz to s-era jazz-rock fusion and s-era Latin jazz.

Stylistically, this aspect of performance was shaped by its starting place, New Orleans, [6] as well as numerous other regions of the world, including other parts of the United States , the Caribbean , and Africa.

Jazz required a method of playing percussion different from traditional European styles, one that was easily adaptable to the different rhythms of the new genre, fostering the creation of jazz drumming's hybrid technique.

Jazz guitar refers to a variety of guitar playing styles used in the various jazz genres. Although the earliest guitars used in jazz were acoustic and acoustic guitars are still sometimes used in jazz, most jazz guitarists since the s have performed on an electrically amplified guitar or electric guitar.

Traditionally, jazz electric guitarists use an archtop with a relatively broad hollow sound-box, violin-style f-holes , a " floating bridge ", and a magnetic pickup.

Solid body guitars, mass-produced since the early s, are also used. Jazz piano has played a leading role in developing the sound of jazz.

The piano's role is multifaceted due largely to the instrument's combined melodic and harmonic capabilities. For this reason it is an important tool of jazz musicians and composers for teaching and learning jazz theory and set arrangement, regardless of their main instrument.

Jazz pianists also make extensive use of chord "extensions", such as adding the sixth, ninth, or thirteenth scale degree to the chord. When jazz pianists improvise , they use the scales, modes, and arpeggios associated with the chords in a tune's chord progression.

The clarinet is a woodwind instrument with a single-reed mouthpiece. A clarinet player is known as an clarinetist. Originally, the clarinet was a central instrument in jazz, beginning with the New Orleans players in the s.

It remained a signature instrument of jazz through much of the big band era into the s. Harry Carney , primarily Ellington's baritone saxophonist, occasionally doubled on bass clarinet.

Meanwhile, Pee Wee Russell had a long and successful career in small jazz bands. With the decline of the big bands' popularity in the late s, the clarinet faded from its prominent position in jazz and the saxophone rose in importance in many jazz bands, probably because it uses a less complicated fingering system [11] and thus could better accommodate the requirement for an increased speed of execution in modern jazz than the clarinet.

But the clarinet did not entirely disappear. In the late 50s, traditional jazz experienced a revival, with the notable example of clarinetist Acker Bilk 's Bristol Paramount Jazz Band.

Some of the works of Bilk's jazz band reached the pop charts. In the saxophone section, all of the saxophones will play a similar melodic line, but the baritone sax doubles by occasionally joining in with the bass trombone and bass to play the bass line.

A big band saxophone section typically consists of two alto saxophones , two tenor saxophones , and one baritone saxophone.

Saxophone players are often expected to double on clarinet , flute , or soprano saxophone. In earlier periods of jazz, a bass saxophone was used as a bass line instrument, though this is far less common today.

The trombone section consists of three tenor trombones and one bass trombone. The trumpet section consists of four trumpets, though some compositions and arrangements call for five trumpets.

A trumpet player may sometimes double on a flugelhorn. The tuba is the largest and lowest-pitched brass instrument. This instrument made its first appearance in the 19th century, being played at orchestras.

When involved with jazz, most tubas are played outdoors. Tuba players are generally called "Jazz tubists. Jazz violin is the use of the violin or electric violin to improvise solo lines.

Although the violin has been used in jazz recordings since the first decades of the 20th century, it is more commonly associated with folk music than jazz.

In jazz-rock fusion styles, jazz violinists may use an electric violin plugged into an instrument amplifier along with effects such as a wah pedal or a distortion fuzzbox.

The viola and cello are bowed string instruments. When being used in jazz, the viola and cello are more commonly tuned to fourths.

A viola player is known as a violist. A cello player is known as a cellist. The definition of a jazz vocalist can be unclear because jazz has shared a great deal with blues and pop music since the s.

Scat singing is vocal improvisation with wordless vocables, nonsense syllables or without words at all. Though scat singing is improvised, the melodic lines are often variations on scale and arpeggio fragments, stock patterns and riffs , as is the case with instrumental improvisers.

The deliberate choice of scat syllables is also a key element in vocal jazz improvisation. Syllable choice influences the pitch articulation , coloration, and resonance of the performance.

Jazz standards are an important part of the musical repertoire of jazz musicians. Another important aspect of jazz is improvisation " jams ".

Bands playing in this fashion fall under the category of jam bands. Starting shortly after , the first bands from New Orleans began to using the word "jass" or " jazz " in their band name, or to describe their music.

Edison, Inc. After litigation and claims of copyright infringement, the title was changed to Dixie 'Jass' Band One-Step. Vince Guaraldi and Ramsey Lewis were notable leaders of jazz trios in the s, both of whom had crossover pop hits: Guaraldi with " Cast Your Fate to the Wind " not to mention his frequent contributions to the Peanuts television specials and Lewis with " The In Crowd " and " Wade in the Water.

Michael Cuscuna complimented the band, saying "They all had their own unique perspective on how to compose and play, and when those unique components came together, they created an absolutely whole new sound.

It is extraordinarily creative. Pianist Pete Jolly once said of this group, "You've got to love that rhythm section" and Chuck Berghofer , who had once played with the band, [26] even ventured to say "They changed music history".

Another greatly influential band was the Art Ensemble of Chicago in the s and s. The Art Ensemble was the vanguard for many contemporary pioneers today with their progressive style.

Vandermark said of the group "For their first 15 years this group attacked nearly improvising aesthetic with complete originality" while Wadada Leo Smith is quoted for having said "I heard them live and watched them in action.

They took theatrics to another level, spontaneous theater that had a theme and character to it. Oluyemi Thomas is also quoted "The Art Ensemble has moved the music into an area that allows for space and silence.

Their unique approach to collaboration is unparalleled in creative music. They have a poetic sense and social consciousness. They have positively influenced my music and all of creative music.

During the swing era , trombones were an essential part of the big band. When bebop came around, trombones became less common, owing to the fact that it is simply more difficult to play sinewy lines on trombones than on other instruments.

Because of its power and its unique tone, the trombone is frequently used in many stylistic veins. The trumpet is the instrument perhaps most widely associated with jazz, partly because it was played by the iconic Louis Armstrong.

The trumpet is a brass instrument, which means that it is made of brass and its tone is created when the lips are buzzed in its mouthpiece. Pitches are changed by changing the shape of the lips, and by fingering its three valves.

The trumpet's brilliant tone has made it an essential part of the jazz ensemble from early jazz through contemporary styles.

Michael Verity is a jazz musician, writer, and photographer and a regular contributor many music industry niche sites. The upright bass is a wooden, four-stringed instrument used to play low notes.

In a s-style Dixieland jazz band, a larger ensemble would be formed by adding a banjo player, woodwind instruments, as with the clarinet, or additional horns saxophones, trumpets, trombones to one of the smaller groups.

In a s-style Swing big band, a larger ensemble is formed by adding "sections" of like instruments, such as a saxophone section and a trumpet section, which perform arranged "horn lines" to accompany the ensemble.

In a s-style jazz fusion ensemble, a larger ensemble is often formed by adding additional percussionists or sometimes a saxophone player would "double" or "triple" meaning that they would also be proficient at the clarinet, flute or both.
