In this article, I read that Jazz originated from New Orleans, Louisiana. I wasn’t surprised by this because when I went to Louisiana on Bourbon Street, there were multiple instruments being played but it favored jazz music. Also, when I went to clubs, jazz is very popular in restaurants. I also read that jazz has a mixture of Blues in it. I found this very interesting because sometimes it is very hard to differentiate between blues and jazz music based off the sound. 

In this article it also says that Louis Armstrong was one of the major important figures that was introduced to Jazz. He was extremely relevant during the 1920s and 1960s which I was surprised because the gap was very long and usually peaks last for only a few years. He was later inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame.
