A similarity between the two genres is that they both have a focus on live performance. Both jazz and blues rely heavily on strong improvisational skills, allowing for a unique performance each time depending on the mood of the musicians or audience.

Additionally, many famous singers have been influenced by both styles, including Billie Holiday, Etta James and Buddy Guy.
