Jazz / Blues Info

Jazz / Blues

You can witness a piece of American history come to life with StateTheatreConcerts' jazz-blues tickets. These cherished genres are deeply rooted in American culture and have impacted a variety of genres throughout the globe. Jazz/Blues has influenced many genres such as Bluegrass, R&B, Rock and roll, Rock music, Funk, Fusion, Ragtime, etc.

What is Jazz?

Jazz has a kind of music where improvisation is quite common. The artist uses this improvisation to their advantage by giving it their personal touch. Most jazz concerts feature solos made up on the spot, which takes a lot of skill. Jazz is very different, but a lot of it has a steady beat, moves forward in a way called "swing," and uses "bent" or "blue" notes.

What is Blues?

Blues music is an American popular music genre that evolved from the songs of enslaved Africans, Black Americans, and sharecroppers in the mid-nineteenth century. Unfortunately, one of the most deceptive musical genres is the blues. It's upbeat, jovial, and full of joy, yet it's also a heartbreakingly sad song about loneliness and misery.


The roots of Jazz and blues may be traced back to African-American communities in the southern United States throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. From there, Jazz and blues were added to more and more popular styles of music like pop, rock, metal, hip-hop, and other styles that shaped American music in the 1950s and 1960s.

In the eyes of art historians and music lovers, Jazz and blues are now seen as one of America's own original art forms, and their influence cannot be overstated. Though their popularity has waned as pop and techno music have taken over the charts, new versions of these genres have a large following.

The creative talent of blues-rock, jazz-funk, and hip-hop crossover performers such as Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, and Flying Lotus Thundercat, among others, has elevated the genre to new heights.

Why Jazz / Blues?

From grief to joy, Jazz can portray a broad spectrum of emotions. Jazz/Blues has historically been a strong voice for people who have been treated unjustly because of their skin color or live in a country controlled by a cruel ruler. Yet, you could hear the sounds of freedom in the music.
