Hi Everyone! Jazz served as the foundation for rock and roll music, which is what we will be exploring in this week’s discussion. With this in mind, for this assignment, select one Jazz composer that is not covered in the course text. (Be sure to choose someone who is noton this list:  Scott Joplin, Sippie Wallace, Original Dixieland Jazz Band, Louis Armstrong, and Jelly Roll Morton.) Write your post from the perspective of your chosen composer and discuss the style of his or her music. Then explain how this composer influenced the development of Jazz and how his or her contributions have impacted popular American music. (Be sure to write from the composer’s perspective. Do not just include a biography of the composer. The focus should be on the style of music, contributions to the evolution of Jazz music, and the impact this composer’s music has had on popular American music.) Also, please include a YouTube link featuring a performance of your chosen Jazz composer’s music. Be sure to write in your own words and cite your sources. Initial posts should be a minimum of 250 words.
