Music travels and gravitates to many ears and listeners. At the shift into the end of 1920 years the highly jazz talented that were performing were in circuit overseas from the United States to Europe. The spread of jazz has taken its fan base and art to high levels of audience and fresh waves of frequency across send messages in it’s history since being documented first recordings in America.
The first jazz superstar as we knew was Louis Armstrong in 1927. The solo superstar that stuck with his traditional setup to musical creation style. “What a Wonderful World” is a staple for the movies, commercials the holidays and to this day can be introduced to the newest or unfamiliar jazz listener. The song made it’s way around radio and prestigious Billboard rankings top 100 as well .
As we let you know about us we introduced how the word jazz came to be and it didn’t enter vocabulary until 1912 although the music was experienced years before it was titled. The new sound was popping as it was powerful in volume, and included a tempo that was new to the world of music that was widely recognized. The reach made it to New York, Chicago, California and where the music industry leaked on the road in the US as multi millions of records were distributed during the time of the 1920s. When you add radio broadcast the want and urgency to hear it was booming.
The first documented European famous jazz professional is guitarist Django Reinhardt, in the 1930s. Since then it has continuously added reach of listeners as a worldwide music.Nowadays every major city in the Earth spread word of local hub fan spots, places performing jazz and people interested to hear more and are familiar with what already exists in jazz so far.
Since its widespread take over then now the jazz interest in measured music industry the US has dipped. Nielsen reports for year end music that jazz’s total share of volume by format and genre is at the lowest scale taking up 1%. That has been floating around that percentage even back since the 2014 report. This makes jazz at this time in the United States along with classical the leased consumed music following children’s music. Classical outsold jazz with digital album sales.
This seems to be a growing tendency in the recent decade directly in sales. Numbers don’t lie of course as we understand for measuring sale popularity. The listeners are not as tuned in as they once were on a popular music sales level. The new fan and listeners haven’t caught on with as much as Rock and Hip Hop loyalty to stream and purchase.
We look to extend the jazz fest.
