Artists by Musical Genre

Jazz, the bridge between blues, gospel and ragtime, first arose in the United States at the end of the 19th century, the direct result of African musical traditions meeting white European culture. As it evolved over time, the genre spawned several offshoots, including swing, jazz fusion, electro-jazz, Latin jazz and free jazz, and such supremely talented musicians as Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett have chosen to call it their own.
