Funk track is now not an remoted genre, but one comes from a wealthy musical lineage. In the late 19th century, African American musicians commenced gaining countrywide interest for some very unique sounds that blended African rhythmic traditions with American gospel. By the early 20th century, this popular sound used to be being known as jazz music, even though it lacked a general definition. Jazz used to be about improvisation, freedom of expression, energetic tempos and progressive rhythms.

The freedom of jazz, and its growing popularity, introduced wider attention to African American musical patterns and prompted these musicians to proceed experimenting. Many extraordinary forms of jazz music emerged, but most were heavily identified with young, black, city culture. These features defined the attitude of jazz, as well as its function in the new dancing and leisure cultures of the Roaring Twenties.
