Its roots lie in the African-American adoption of European harmony and form onto existing African musical elements. Its African musical basis is evident in its use of blue notes, improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation and the swung note. From its early development until the present day, jazz has also incorporated elements from popular music especially, in its early days, from American popular music." ~ W ( Jazz in the palm of your hand.
