    Beebop - Small group / Complex harmonic ideas / melody usually played in unison followed by solos

    Avant Garde - Small to medium groups - Melody usually dominant but a different kind of melody - free from imposed standards in form, rhythm, melody, and harmony

    3rd Stream - Uses instruments not associated with Jazz (harp, strings, etc) - Uses classical music composition devices along with Jazz cliches - Concert style of music not appropriate for dancing in clubs

    Soul Jazz - Uses some amplified instruments (organ, piano, electric bass, drums) Usually reflects Gospel influence, singing melodies - Extended solos, slow dynamic buildup common

    Ethnic Jazz - Sitar, Ethnic instruments (craqqers used spoons and pans) - Far eastern sound sometimes used - Uses dance forms or beats, such as the samba influences

    Lithurgical Jazz - Chorus, Vocal Solos along with instruments - Religious orientation - influence from Gospel and Soul

    Fusion - Electronic instruments (shitty music) drums, more prominant, guitars - combines elements of Jazz and Rock (and sucks asshole in a major way) - Intensity and rhythmic drive from rock, feedback and distortion (and nobody should ever listen to it)

    New Age - Crap - Traditional instrument, synthesized "world music" (junk) sounds - Electronic sound to it - Shitty, horrible queer hippie sounding acid droppin trash

    That's all . . . .

    And then I have to write 3 two page responses to songs at the end of the test telling what instruments (there's gonna be over ten on each) are being used, who's performing the song, what time frame it is from . . . etc

    Can't wait till next week is done. No more music classes for me.

    You're not one of those people who pretend to like jazz to seem more intelligent or whatever are you?

    btw I just spent a good 20 seconds looking to see if intelligent had one L or two. That obviously excludes me from the intelligent crew.

    McCoy - No, I don't like Jazz. Can't stand the shit. This semester has been torture. Sad thing is, the prof is like the guy in Jerry Mguire - the queer mansitter - This dude made us go see three live concerts and write about it. I swear, never again will I take another music class. He's talkin all sorts of strange shit in class about the "magic of jazz" and the "genius of Miles Davis and Coltrane and I'm just like . . . "Dude, what the fuck ever. They're just playin instruments, relax."

    Classic!

    This is when you should have realized the thread was a satire.
    Everybody with an IQ over 100 did.
