Parent Genre: jazz

Dark jazz is a genre of music that combines elements of jazz with haunting and melancholic tones. It often features slow, brooding melodies and moody atmospheres, with a focus on creating a sense of introspection and reflection. The genre is characterized by its use of minor chords, dissonant harmonies, and unconventional instrumentation, which can include electronic and ambient sounds. Dark jazz is often associated with a sense of mystery and unease, and is frequently used in film soundtracks and other media to create a sense of tension and suspense.
