During this particular period overlapping both the 1960s and 1970s, with its epicentres in New York, Chicago, London, Paris and Berlin, jazz underwent its most profound revolution in modern times, with the emergence of free jazz/new thing, electric jazz, a new improvised form of music from Europe, and the first incarnation of a new European jazz. This new jazz was shaped by the social conditions of the era, as well as by technological developments. New paradigms were emerging in cinema, literature and art.
