Overall, attending this jazz concert was a great experience. I would not hesitate to attend another jazz concert if I had another opportunity to attend another concert like this. In my opinion, if there were to be a vocalist within the group, I cannot even imagine how fascinating the performances would have been. It would definitely captivate the audience’s attention and fascinate the audience even more. I really enjoyed the sound of the songs specifically the rhythm of the songs that were played during the performances.
Jazz music has got a certain element to it that no other type of music that I have heard thus far have. In all, this concert was a wonderful experience for me. I found a passion for a different brand of music.
I was really confused at first because I wasn’t used to playing the notes in swing form. After practicing a lot, I really enjoyed playing in jazz band. While being in the band, I noticed many differenced between jazz and concert band. Jazz band is more upbeat. In concert band, the music is normally is more classical and sophisticated.
It was probably my favorite piece played in this concert. The changing if tempos really made you pay more attention and it wasn't slow or boring. The sonata forms allowed the musicians to perform more difficult parts from the pieces and it was very entertaining to observe. This piece also ... ... middle of paper ... ...ext and final movement was the finale. This movement brought back themes from the first movement and the third movement and gave the piece a feeling of ending.
The Ron Eschete Trio?s music style was not quite what I have expected. Although it was totally different from the jazz I was used to listen in class, I really like it. It was very modern, but also had the elements of early Jazz.
The amount of musician playing never crossed my mind but going to the concert forced me to think about the number. I would have never guessed that any more than 10 people could play jazz, and on top of that also make it sound so beautiful. I was amazed to see how well the musicians were coordination with each other and also how well they sounded with a different pitch. Not only that, I also loved the call and response the musicians were having, and how well the instruments followed each other. I think the musicians were all thinking about good times as I noticed many of them moving their head with the melody and also just by looking at their faces you could tell there were having a good time and just enjoying themselves which further lead the audience to enjoy it more.
Another factor that made me enjoy the jazz festival was the feel-good music that was played at the festival which served to encourage the audience to get up and dance. Thus, diversification is a significant lesson to grasp when observing music because all music has different origin from another genre and acknowledging this gives the person to become more diverse as an individual. After a critical review of the experiences gotten from both the two concerts, I would easily recommend the jazz concert over the orchestra for anyone seeking a place to relax and unwind. This is because I felt unlike in the orchestra concert which was characterized by formal behavior and a number of unwritten rules that members of the audience had to abide by. The jazz concert allowed for the audience to be themselves and enjoy the music in the manner they deemed to be
People who listened to it could relate to the words being sung and felt happier afterwards. The other side of the debate, though, felt as though the music was bringing on a new era, one that they were not comfortable with. Understandably so, because change is never easy. This group of people were "fearful of such rapid change and nostalgic for the small-town America" that they had once known. They had become used to quiet, conservative times, which were now changing due to the "noise" we call jazz.
Then the song continued on to the end with the same melody and rhythm from the beginning. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and I was very pleased to have attended. All the members in Menifee Jazz Ensemble are uberly talented and I felt proud for them because they did a fantastic job. This concert was an eye opener because I never really enjoyed listening to jazz as much as I did that night watching it being played live. I now have found a new respect for it.
