Folk-Jazz is used for musicians (from the 1950s on) who often use strong folk melodies as vehicles for solos. They tend to keep their ears open to musical developments in other countries (e.g., world music), emphasize quieter volumes, and break down boundaries between jazz and seemingly unrelated genres. Examples of folk-jazz include the music of Jimmy Giuffre, Tony Scott (post-1959), Paul Horn, Paul Winter, and Oregon. Folk-jazz was a direct influence on new age.
