jazz meets brass
Initially the Brass Band was an invention of the armed service found in The european countries. In
these units, the army had specific people which spent their time spreading both moral messages
along with orders by the various songs that they played. Mainly because they didn't possess the
radio ability that modern-day armies have got, it was the best way to spread common orders
through the substantial armies. Needless to say, the lads whom invested their hours in service
playing the Brass Band instruments brought the musical instruments home and would perform
Brass Band events for their friends and families.
During the nineteenth century, the Brass Band customs traveled to The states. The American
armed forces formed counterparts to the Uk Brass Band. Then, like their English military before
them, the custom spread outside of the limits of the army and in to the streets of America, at
some point traveling down the awesome Mississippi and finish up in New Orleans.
Just after Brass Band concerts arrived in New Orleans, they began to take on a life of their own.
In the initial stages, it was primarily family members and friends of departed that might play the
Brass Band instruments at the funerals of their relatives that had passed away. And then the lively
African inspired rhythms of Congo Square in New Orleans began to infiltrate and impact the
music of the Brass Band. The bands started to be hired for both the funerals and for additional
functions where music was suitable, however something which was going on would permanently
affect the face of Brass Band music.
The Brass Bands, then consisting of just a few members, would begin by playing the ethnically
motivated music, however, when the bands were recruited to play larger events, they were made
to complement one another. The band members would not all know the rhythms of the other band
member's ethnic backgrounds, and might merge the things they knew with what they heard. Thus,
the New Orleans Brass Band created a familiar style that was exclusive to New Orleans. buy

By the mid 1900's, the Brass Band vogue had delved so deeply in to New Orleans jazz it had
become considered the traditional sound of jazz. But, because the only certain kinds of places
that welcomed and attracted the Brass Band were successful in selling Brass Band tickets, the
music has developed a lot more slowly compared to other types of music. The fans of jazz music
and Brass Bands are faithful and enjoy the typical sound which is labeled as New Orleans Brass
Band Jazz even today.
