bebop

A form of jazz invented by black jazz artists in the United States in the 1940s who were determined to break free from the constraints of the big dance bands. Small groups of musicians were typical, playing at fast tempos, often extemporizing, and displaying great instrumental virtuosity. Also known as bop or rebop.
