Welcome to The 30s and 40s

By: Amaya Roberts

During the 1930s and 1940s in the United States, jazz and swing music swept the country. The origins of jazz music may be traced back to New Orleans, which served as a safe haven for African Americans in the United States. Jazz was defined as a fusion of earlier genres such as ragtime and blues. Traditional jazz and depop jazz are two different classifications of jazz. The trumpet and saxophones are two instruments that are used to draw the audience’s attention.
