The Periodic Table of Jazz

13 Feb

Image and David Marriott, Jr. developed this table organizing the major jazz musicians that shaped the genre.  Each row represents a decade (with the 1920s at the top) while each color represents the featured artist’s instrument.  Naturally, Miles Davis gets his own category.  Also, be sure to check out the interactive link below that redirects you to artist playlists and biographies.  Editorial note: Bill Evans is all that matters in life.
