Jazz Influencers

American Jews and Jazz

As Jazzspread in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the original music began to take on different influences, including innovations of Jewish composers who worked along New York's Tin Pan Alley.

Lee Konitz, an alto saxophonist and composer, noted for his melodic improvisation skills,was a leading figure in cool jazz of the 1940s and 1950s. In 1967, Konitz recordeda series of duets with diverse musicians called The Lee Konitz Duets. Some of the parings were unusual: sax and trombone, Sax and violin, sax and guitar, sax and drums, or two saxophones. The recordings drew on very nearly the entire history of jazz.

Stan Getz was among the most popular jazz musicians of the 1960s and 1970s.Getz was significant in introducingbossa nova music to American audiences. In 1962, Getz partnered with Charlie Byrd to recordJazz Samba , which quickly became a hit.Getz, working on the Getz/Gilberto album withJoo Gilberto and Antnio Carlos Jobim recorded "The Girl from Ipanema" , which became one of the most well-knownLatin jazz tracks.
