'Be-Bop', my first word in the header

Be-Bop is a style of Jazz born in the early and mid 40's as a result of the boring commercial circle that Jazz had turned into where the same hits sounded over and over every night.
There was a pub in Harlem (New York) called Minton's Playhouse. The owner was a man named Teddy Hill who had a brilliant idea. He thought...'If I open the bar until dawn, I will get all Jazz musicians play there'. That way a new style originated from the 1930's swing music.
There were a lot of famous musicians who played Be-Bop among whom was the sacastic Bird, `Charlie Parker'. Someone asked him...What does Be-Bop mean?, and he said, 'We use that word, because it reminds us of the sound of the police nightsticks beating the black men heads.'
The Be-Bop or Bop is characterized by fast tempo, instrumental virtuosity and improvisation based on the combination of harmonic structure and melody. This style of Jazz invented by the couple Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie became synonymous with modern jazz, as either category reached a certain final maturity in the 1960's.
