12 Health Benefits of listening to Jazz Music

Last Update: April 30, 2016


Jazz is a music genre that originated from African American communities of New Orleans in the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Although the foundation of jazz is deeply rooted within the black experience of the United States, different cultures have contributed their own experience and styles to the art form as well.

As jazz spread around the world, it drew on different national, regional, and local musical cultures, which gave rise to many distinctive styles.

This music's calming effects have a soothing and observable effect on the body.

The health benefits of jazz include:

– reduce blood pressure

– normalize heart beats

– reduce time and intensity of migraine headaches

– improve memory

– induce relaxation

– boost immunity

– speed up post-stroke recovery

– help release endorphins to alleviate chronic pain

– enhance higher brain function

– improves productivity

– reduce stress

– improve one's mood to lessen effects of depression


The music of jazz is changing. This is due to the ever-evolving world of technology and electronic manipulation. This is an exciting time for that genre!

As we observe the International Day of Jazz, take a few moments to enjoy famous jazz musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Count Bassie, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles and Miles Davis.

Happy listening and good health to you!
