Wedessence Staff
The origin of jazz can be stretched back to the early 20th century. More popular among African-American people, this is a mixed musical genre of European classical and American traditional music. Instrumental jazz was based mainly on saxophone. Contemporary jazz was incorporated with American pop, giving rise to many newer versions. Jazz songs perfectly complement wedding ambience. The lyrics and tunes harmonize well in weddings, allowing couples to enjoy the dance form.

Selecting the best from the huge number of songs is quite difficult. Some of the songs composed in the year 1920 are still very famous. They are creations of talented musicians like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Freddie Hubbard, Sarah Vaughan, etc. Jazz, being loved by people during weddings, owes to the typical dance steps involving rhythmic tapping of feet.
