Re: Bix and Rock?

by Glenda Childress

There are some similarities between early rock and early jazz, as well as many differences.

In several ways the 1920s and the 1960s have factors in common, both producing a new expression of an older form of music, both relying upon highly rhythmic and largely improvisational small ensemble playing. There are some notable parallels in the social scene in which they both arose as well. I would suppose those commonalities were what the speaker had in mind.
