The Sociology Of Jazz Many teenagers these days constantly hear that their music is terrible Out of all the bands that I like my parents like a handful This is not happening just to us Back in the thirties and forties teenagers were told the same But back then there were no heavy metal bands or rap bands There were however jazz bands In this essay I will discuss the culture changes in those days and how they affected music First of all the culture of the thirties was entirely different from the culture today People back then did not dress in khaki pants and t-shirts They dressed in suits and hats They werent driving around drunk going one hundred miles per hour on a small suburban driveway And they did not listen to rap and rock simply because it did not exist That is what the adult culture was like back then There was a subculture to that culture It was the culture of the bobby-soxers also known as teenagers While they still did not wear t-shirts they did drive around in insane manners they drank they smoked and they listened not to ragtime but to jazz and swing That scared and confused their parents much like our parents are scared for us today Jazz and Swing influenced much of that change that goes on Specifically it was the Swing This type of music was fast-paced and never the same The best type of dancing to swing was well to swing Teens went to swing concerts to toss their partners flip spin and whatnot Many people were getting hurt and scared the adults Jazz and Swing also have a lot to contribute to cultural diffusion Jazz originated in New Orleans the town of stirred cultures There were many different people living in that port town but particularly there were quite a few African-Americans Their culture diffused from the tribal ways of home
