Jazz Music Instruments

Q. Which instruments are most commonly associated with jazz music?
A. The rhythm section of a jazz band is made up of Double (or acoustic) bass, drum kit and either piano or guitar. The piano and guitar are reffered to as harmony instruments and as they cover the same ground, they are often not used at the same time. The most common “lead” instruments (or melody instruments) are trumpet, trombone, saxophone (tenor, alto & baritone) and of course, vocals. There are other instruments which are used less often. Some examples of these are harmonica, vibraphone, violin and cello.
