Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Jazz music uses improvisation, blue notes,
swing, call and response, polyrhythm and syncopation. Its roots come from Africa music and include sounds from spirituals,
blues and ragtime. Musicians played in nightclubs to audiences who danced swing across the dance floors.
After originating in the early 20th century in New Orleans, Jazz spread to the rest of the nation where its sounds caught
on like wildfire. It was perfected and played throughout the century, now Jazz is used in modern sounds like artists Norah
Jones and Amy Winehouse. Even pop singer Christina Aguilera recorded a jazz-based album that did exceptionally well on
the charts. See these modern day Jazz sensations at a city near you, get your Jazz tickets
