    The piano has seen many sights and has been a part of countless important events in the past and present, and is said to have dominated music for the past 200 years. Throughout history, inventions come along that “take art away from princes and give it the people” (Swan 41).

    1073 words, 5 pages

    Bebop is a style of jazz created around the era of the 1940’s. It was based around smaller groups of musicians of about 4 to 6 musicians rather than around 10 or more which big bands usually consisted of.

Great examples of these are Thelonious Monk and Dizzy Gillespie. Base lines became more detailed rather than just a “walking bass” and there was more emphasis on the role of the rhythm section.
