Smooth jazz is one of the most conflicting styles in modern jazz music. His roots have been traced back to the late 1960s when he gained the power of the easily listening radio format of popular music. But when the radio massively focuses on more modern rock or disco sound in the 80's, many fans of value instrumental genres find their way into artists such as David Sanborn, Bob James, Grover Washington-junior, and others.
At first, this type of jazz was considered more easily perceived by the audience and found its place in the modern broadcast format. Actually the truth is that the smooth jazz is the intersection of J's style with the genres popular in the 1970s and 1980s, such as funk, pop, jargon. Unlike classic jazz, the accent is largely on melody rather than on improvisation. That is where the opposite opinions and beliefs about style come from.
For some people, this is the more enjoyable jazz, and the puritans accept it with negativity, accusing the performers of commercialism and selling the characteristic values of the genre. The second statement is also true, it just depends on the point of view. Because there was a time when jazz music was almost forbidden, and she had not managed to find a place in popular radio stations and public places. It is this fact that has forced the kind of lightening of the genre and mixing it with easily accepted and known audience models. To a large extent, jazz music owes its popularity today to this modern scramble wave. From the point of view of 2003, style is surely the most popular type of jazz music, and the merger is mainly performed with some of the most popular genres at the moment - chill out, r'n'b, latino, soul.
