The bebop style
During the 1940s, a new style of playing emerged among the jazz circles. Many musicians strayed from the dance-oriented jazz style that prevailed, and adopted the bebop style, characterized by fast tempos, complex improvisations, that was considered to be significantly more cerebral than jazz music used to be.
Until today, every musician who wants to learn jazz studies the improvisatory style of bebop, whose influence can today be heard among the most diverse selection of artists!
