i'm doing my research paper on jazz and its significance to America and American culture. i broke it down in to parts; each part describes a characteristic of jazz, shows how it developed, then why it is significant. i have five of these parts so far: 1-jazz's stressing of individuality while remaining part of a group or ensemble 2-mainly played and created by black americans 3-vocal instrumentation 4-emphasis on rhythm, percussiveness 5-mutual influence from African and European music i need help showing the emphasis on rhythm in jazz. any other suggestions on showing any of my other five traits would be helpful too. thanks. also, i have to turn this in on monday, but this weekend is gonna be busy (motorhead show, brother's b-day, mother's day) so i have to finish today!!!
