Yass (music)

Yass (jass) is a new music style that mixes jazz, improvised music, techno, punk rock, and folk.

This term appeared in late 1980 and was used to define a new stream in Polish music, which had been raised in Gdańsk and Bydgoszcz. The name's author was Tymon Tymański, a double-bass and guitar player from Gdansk, who wanted to stress a novelty of the new style.
