called “the art of expression set to music”, and “America‟s great contribution to music” It has functioned as popular art and enjoyed periods of fairly widespread public response, in the “jazz age” of the 1920s, in the “swing era” of the late 1930s and in the peak popularity of modern jazz in the late 1950s The standard legend about Jazz is that it originated around the end of the 19th century in New Orleans and moved up the Mississippi River to Memphis, St Louis, and finally to Chicago It welded together the elements of Ragtime, marching band music, and the Blues However, the influences of what led to those early sounds goes back to tribal African drum beats and European musical structures Buddy Bolden, a New Orleans barber and cornet player, is generally considered to have been the first real Jazz musician, around 1891 What made Jazz significantly different from the other earlier forms of music was the use of improvisation Jazz displayed a break from traditional music where composers wrote an entire piece of music on paper, leaving the musicians to break their backs playing exactly what was written on the score In a Jazz piece, however, the song is simply a starting point, or sort of skeletal guide for the Jazz musicians to improvise around Actually, many of the early Jazz musicians were bad sight readers and some couldn’t even read music at all Generally speaking, these early musicians couldn’t make very much money and were stuck working menial jobs to make a living The second wave of New Orleans Jazz musicians included such memorable players as Joe Oliver, Kid Ory, and Jelly Roll Morton These men formed small bands and took the music of earlier musicians, improved its complexity, and gained greater success This music is known as “hot Jazz” due to the enormously fast speeds and rhythmic drive A young cornet player by the name of Louis Armstrong was discovered by Joe Oliver in New Orleans He soon grew up to become one of (30) the greatest and most successful musicians of all time, and later one of the biggest stars in the world The impact of Armstrong and other talented early Jazz musicians changed the way we look at music 21 The Passage answers which of the following questions? (A) Why did Ragtime, marching band music, and the Blues lose popularity after about 1900? (B) What were the origins of Jazz and how did it differ from other forms of music?

The answer lay in a resource that unknowing Americans lands trampled underfoot in their haste to cross the “Great American Desert” to reach lands that sometimes proved barren In the eastern parts of the United States, the preferred grass for forage was a cultivated plant It grew well with enough rain, then when cut and stored it would cure and become nourishing hay for winter feed But in the dry grazing lands of the West that familiar bluejoint grass was often killed by drought To raise cattle out there seemed risky or even hopeless Who could imagine a fairy-tale grass that required no rain and somehow made it possible for cattle to feed themselves all winter? But the surprising western wild grasses did just that They had wonderfully convenient features that made them superior to the cultivated eastern grasses Variously known as buffalo grass, grama grass, or mesquite grass, not only were they immune to drought; but they were actually preserved by the lack of summer and autumn rains They were not juicy like the cultivated eastern grasses, but had short, hard stems And they did not need to be cured in a barn, but dried right where they grew on the ground When they dried in this way, they remained naturally sweet and nourishing through the winter Cattle left outdoors to fend for themselves thrived on this hay And the cattle themselves helped plant the fresh grass year after year for they trampled the natural seeds firmly into the soil to be watered by the melting snows of winter and the occasional rains of spring The dry summer air cured them much as storing in a barn cured the cultivated grasses 50 What does the passage mainly discuss? A A type of wild vegetation B Western migration after Civil War C The raising of cattle D The climate of the Western United States 51 What can be inferred by the phrase “Legend has it” in line 1? A Most history book include the story of the train B The story of the train is similar to other ones from that time period C The driver of the train invented the story D The story of the train may not be completed factual 52 The word “they” in line refers to _ A plains B skeletons C oxen D Americans 53 What can be inferred about the “Great American Desert” mentioned in line 7? A Many had settled there by the 1860‟s B It was not originally assumed to be a fertile area C It was a popular place to raise cattle before the Civil War D It was not discovered until the late 1800‟s 54 The word “barren” in line is closed in meaning to _ A lonely B uncomfortable C infertile D dangerous 55 The word “preferred” in line is closed in meaning to _ A favored B available C ordinary D required 56 Which of the following can be inferred about the cultivated grass mentioned in the second paragraph? A Cattle raised in the Western United States refused to eat it B It had to be imported into the United States C It would probably not grow in the western United States D It was difficult for cattle to digest 57 Which of the following was NOT one of the names given to the western grasses? A Mesquite grass B Bluejoint grass C Buffalo grass D Grama grass 58 Which of the following was NOT mentioned as a characteristic of western grasses? A They contain little moisture B They have tough stems C They can be grown indoors D They are not affected by dry weather 59 According to the passage, the cattle help promote the growth of the wild grass by A eating only small quantities of grass B continually moving from one grazing area to another C naturally fertilizing the soil D stepping on and pressing the seeds into the ground Mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the word or phrase that is CLOSEST in meaning to the underlined part in each of the following questions 60 The value of an old item increases with time A an original B an antique C a facsimile D a bonus 61 When he won the first prize, he realized that this was the highest attainment of his life A accomplishment B task C shock D surprise 62 According to scientists, it is possible that another Ice Age will soon be upon us A in the near future B undoubtedly C some day D now 63 Ralph Nader headed the organization called Public Citizen, Inc from 1971 to 1980 A) moved B) directed C) turned D) toiled for 64 General acceptance of 3-D films may prove hard to come by, as the experience of three decades ago indicated A) obtain B) explain C) understand D) discern WRITING: Part I: Rewrite the following sentences in order to keep their original meanings Question 1: This is the best film I’ve ever seen > I’ve ……………………………………………………………………………… Question 2: My school has over 2,000 students > There are ………………………………………………………………………… Question 3: The workers only called off the strike after a new pay offer > Only after ……………………………………………………………………… Question 4: He tries to learn English well so as to find a good job > He tries to learn English well with ……………………………………………… Question 5: Without his help we would all have died > If it ……………………………………………………………………………… Part II: Write a paragraph about the measures to protect endangered species, about 140 words ... duty B it my duty C this my duty D that my duty 48 I'm sure when you've stopped looking for your keys, they'll _up somewhere A take B look C turn D pull 49 To solve this problem, it is... on the ground When they dried in this way, they remained naturally sweet and nourishing through the winter Cattle left outdoors to fend for themselves thrived on this hay And the cattle themselves... popular art and enjoyed periods of fairly widespread public response, in the “jazz age” of the 1920s, in the “swing era” of the late 1930s and in the peak popularity of modern jazz in the late
