Groups of players of musical instruments and/or singers, ranging from two people to entire orchestras.
Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
Those skilled or specializing in the art or practice of music, such as composers, conductors, and performers.
Prints made using the process of lithography, which is a planographic printing process in which a design is deposited on the stone or plate with a greasy substance which will accept ink.
Music, often improvisational, originally developed around the turn of the 20th century by African Americans from elements of blues and ragtime, with syncopated rhythms and a European harmonic structure. Jazz consistently evolved throughout the 20th century with numerous phases, from a New Orleans style or swing, to "free jazz," for example, which emerged in the late 1950s. Therefore, jazz itself has no precise definition, however it has rarely been a completely composed music.
