Jazz slang, you dig?

Jazz vernacular is responsible for so much of the everyday language we use today. Below is a list of slang that the music genre help popularize:

  • hang
  • groovy
  • foxy
  • crib
  • cat
  • ‘the man’
  • bread
  • vibe
  • cool
  • gig
  • dig it!
  • put some stank on it

Fun fact: the origin of the word jazz wasn’t even music-related. The word was originally “used by baseball players and sportswriters in California as a synonym for “enthusiasm.”
