Assignment 1: Band naming and logo design
Our band is called Jazz Discharge. Jazz in itself began in early 20th century America. Jazz has spawned a series of sub-genres such as Big band swing (like us) to Latin Jazz and Smooth Jazz and acid jazz which fuzed hip-hop and funk with jazz. Our band is more of the Big Band swing jazz, some other artists theat you might know in this category are, Count Basie, Cab Calloway, Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, Earl Hines, Glenn Miller, and Artie Shaw, to name a few. Bands like us tend to perform in smaller clubs and jazz bars. Our fan-base is mostly the more sophisticated African-Americans, and band geeks.
