第10课提到了jazz,那么jazz的起源是神马?分别演奏哪些乐器捏?

In Lesson 10, the writer talks about how a visitor broke the family’s clavichord by playing jazz on it. But why does playing jazz music cause so much damage? Why does jazz cause some of the clavichord keys to break?

Jazz music first became popular in the early 1900s among African American communities in southern parts of the US. Jazz music is usually played by a band made up of trumpets, trombones, saxophones, drums, a piano and a double bass, which is a big stringed instrument that you have to stand up to play. Jazz music can be loud, fast and wild (wild enough to break an old clavichord!), or it can be slow and sad. 

A jazz song can also be different every time it is played because most jazz music includes improvisation. Improvisation is when the musician has no music notes to read on the page, so he creates his own melodies on the spot. Musicians have to be very skilled to be able to play off the cuff like this.
