Jazz comes directly from the blues. Specifically, field hollers, call and
response which is very present in African ceremonies and rituals in
different parts of Africa. Harmonically, yes there is european influence
in chord progressions and basic theory, but the rhythms beat,
improvisation are all African inspired.
