Jazzy Jazz Jazz

The genre of Jazz emerged in the southern city of New Orleans, Louisiana in 1895. The city of New Orleans was what people like to call a “melting pot.” This melting pot of a city was comprised of people from all over, Africans, Caribbeans, French, and English. Jazz is a mixture of ragtime and the blues and similar to both it was a form of expression for the black community. Jazz also has influences in future music genres such as disco, hip-hop, pop, r&b and many others.
