Modern Creative

Although partly influenced by the great improvisational masters of the past, modern creative continues to forge ahead by combining older jazz styles such as bop, free, fusion, with newer comtemporary musical styles such as pop music, funk, and rock to create a full body meduim with which to present jazz in a new ‘modern’ light. Modern jazz makes great use of ‘new technologies’ in the form of modern electronic instrumentation and recording devices/mediums to bring compostional and improvisational forms to a new level. Modern creative forms tend to be ‘softer’ than earlier bop derivatives while still maintaing an edge through the incorporation of more diverse, often ethnic, rhythmic approaches to the music. Coming into light in the mid 80’s and being of a predominately improvisational nature, modern creative is greatly a product of its environment - society. Though the players each have unique voices, society blends them to reflect its ‘modern’ sound and feeling.
