Parent Genre: jazz

Contemporary post-bop is a subgenre of jazz that emerged in the 1960s and is characterized by its use of complex harmonies, intricate melodies, and improvisation. It incorporates elements of bebop, hard bop, and modal jazz. The genre is known for its sophisticated and virtuosic musicianship, with a focus on individual expression and group interplay. The music often features a piano-led trio or quartet, with a rhythm section of bass and drums. The style is marked by its use of extended chord progressions, unconventional time signatures, and a wide range of dynamics.
