Music has the ability to make somebody feel a wide range of emotions just by the lyrics, the artist, or the genre. One major example of this is jazz. The forceful rhythms, energizing beats, and rousing styles of jazz have been known to reveal a large impact on people. The vast ways of performing jazz enable it to entertain people widely. Most commonly in correlation with African-Americans, jazz hit its peak during the twentieth century.
The development of American jazz is staggering and a fascinating study, but the music’s influence also transcends borders. On the tropical beaches of Rio de Janeiro in the late 1950s, students, artists and musicians came together to create a new sound called Bossa Nova. It was the result of
In 1925 Armstrong returned to Chicago and started his own band, quintet The Hot Five, which later became septet The Hot Seven. His first recording as a bandleader was held on November 12, 1925, marking the beginning of a prolific record production. Some of the pieces that became hits are "Potato Head Blues", "Muggles" and "West End Blues". Armstrong moved to New York again in 1929, then moved to Los Angeles in 1930 and soon after he starred in a European tour. He moved permanently to New York in 1943.
It was this new complex, and diverse styling that would become a hot commodity of sorts, used in multiple settings including the nightclub scene, theaters, ballrooms, concert halls, and more. An originator of Big Band Jazz, Duke Ellington’s prominent ear for music stretched further beyond the composition and performance scene by aiding in the recruitment of musicians such as: Bubber Miley, famous for using a plunger that made a "wa-wa" sound, and Joe Nanton, who implemented the "growl" of his trombone, cornetist Rex Stewart, and trumpeter Cootie Williams. His orchestra became his most prominent “instrument” surpassing his individual skill as a pianist. Ellington’s style came into fame as his group, The Washintonians, created the Jazz style of “Jungle Sound.” Compositions including “East St. Louis Toodle-Oo” (1926) and “Black and Tan Fantasy” (1927) sport the band’s 1920’s newly formed style. Ellington’s band leadership, compositions, arrangements, and soloist skills provided solid evidence to the claim of Ellington being the greatest Jazz musician of the 20th century.
His poem eventually reached Billie Holiday. Holiday sang the song for the first time at Café Society in Greenwich Village, the first integrated nightclub in New York City. According to a notable biography, “It became a big money-maker because of the tune on the record's other side, "Fine and Mellow," a blues song written by Holiday” (Billie Holiday Biography, 2016). This made a path for Holiday, and it let her to much success. Best explained, a great way to describe Holiday’s legacy, “It’s impossible to imagine American music without Holiday.

Being the first of its kind, jazz was a new sound that peaked people's interest, especially the younger generations of people. Although there have been numerous names affiliating with this time period, F. Scott Fitzgerald coined the term “Jazz Age” during this time period, which is the most common name for this time period (Spanner). Known as “one of America's original art forms”(“Popular Jazz and Swing: America’s Original Art Form”), Jazz had an impact on cities all over the country, especially in New Orleans, Louisiana. The heart and soul of jazz can be found in New Orleans.

This period of time was a post World War One movement from which jazz music emerged. Jazz is “a truly indigenous musical form based off of improvisation” which included “African American blues, ragtime, and European-based popular music” (Lapsansky 243). Its roots originated in the south, where it quickly spread north because of the Great Migration of African Americans. Famous musicians like Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith became famous because of their ability to improvise (vocally and instrumentally) and their exceptional performances in big cities like New York. Jazz was so important around this time that “It was a symbol of the Roaring Twenties” (Lapsansky 244).
