The Evolution of Jazz

An entirely chronological* time travel through the history of jazz music.

This playlist was made for educational purposes and spans from some of the earliest jazz recordings ever made, through the 20th century, and up until today. It features examples of all the different jazz styles, famous and genre-defining recordings, jazz superstars as well as lesser known musicians who helped push the boundaries of the genre.

The latter part of the playlist is ment to show students the broad footprint of jazz music, and features hip hop, rock, metal, fusion, funk, alternative, pop, electronic music, etc. from the past two-three decades (being continuously updated) that bears an obvious influence from jazz.

*In order to get the songs in chronological order, make sure that none of the menu bar items (Track, Artist, Time, etc.) are highlighted, by pressing them until they turn dark grey.
