Acid Jazz

The term Acid
Jazz is loosely
used to cover a
wide range of
music. Although it
is not a true style
of Jazz music that
has evolved from
traditional stems,
it is too significant
to ignore as a
member of the
genre.
Originating in the 1987 British
dance scene, it defined a funky
music style which incorporated
sampled classic Jazz tracks,
70s Funk, Hip-Hop, Soul and
Latin grooves, with the main
focus on instrumental music and
not the lyric. The resulting
mosaic usually ignored
improvisation giving argument
to whether Acid Jazz is, in fact,
Jazz.
