Infographic tracks evolution of Dance music

Ever wondered why Blues and Jazz music sound so like as if they have the same roots? Or why they are influenced so heavily by Jamaican and African music?

An infographic by Thomson has been designed to show those links. You can follow the rise of Jazz and Blues and Rock and Roll and how genres just explode from the mid 80’s onwards. It also shows where these genres were started and how they flowed into other countries.

It doesn’t provide all the answers but it does show a gripping visual map of how different genres have been created by the fusion of ones that came before it.

The infographic can come in handy when trying to find new music. You might for example know all the major bands in Ambient or Chillout, but want to go back one step to see where this music came from. Using the graphic you can see that New Age helped influence Chillout, which itself first appeared around the same time as Disco. Ambient electronica to Disco with little slide of a mouse.

    Some early jazz musicians referred to their music as ragtime. Morton was a crucial innovator in the evolution from ragtime to jazz piano. He could perform pieces in either style. Morton's solos were still close to ragtime, and were not merely improvisations over chord changes, as with later jazz
