5 Jazz Music Jazz is an original American musical art form that began around 1900 in New Orleans. It is rooted in African American musical styles with a blend of Western music technique and theory.
6 Origin of Jazz At the turn of the century, the people of New Orleans were from many different cultures. In the 1800's settlers from England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany and Italy migrated to this prosperous city. As new settlers arrived in the New Orleans' seaport, musical traditions from all over the world began coming together. African American musicians merged European traditions with the blues, ragtime, marching band music and many other elements to create a new style of music known as "jazz."
7 Jazz Instruments Jazz musicians used instruments used in marching bands and dance band music. Instruments such as trumpets, trombones, saxophones, and drums
8 The Roaring 20’s As African Americans migrated to northern cities like Chicago and New York in search of better opportunities, they brought jazz and the blues with them. In the 1920’s many young Americans were discouraged because of the destruction of World War I and they began to challenge the old- fashioned attitudes of their parents. They started listening and dancing to high-spirited jazz and blues became part of their rebellion.
9 Flapper Girls Young women, known as "flappers," shocked their parents by cutting their hair and wearing shorter dresses. They were young women just wanting to have fun and dance to the new music of the 1920’s.
10 Big Band Swing In the 1930’s popular bands became larger in size. The Great Depression caused men and women to struggle to find jobs, and having money to pay record albums was very unlikely. Therefore, radio continued to be the center of entertainment in America. A new style of jazz, "big band swing," emerged. People loved to dance to swing and it became the most popular music of the 1930's and 1940's.
11 Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) was one of the greatest American jazz musicians He was born and raised in New Orleans, the "birthplace of jazz.“ He started his career as a musician in 1922, and continued to grow as a master of the trumpet, and a very good singer
