The History Of Jazz
(the melting pot of sound)



"Anyone who understands jazz knows that you can't understand it.  It's too complicated.  That's whats so simple about it" - Yogi Berra

"New Orleans had a great tradition of celebration. Opera, military marching bands, folk music, the blues, different types of church music, ragtime, echoes of traditional African drumming, and all of the dance styles that went with this music could be heard and seen throughout the city. When all of these kinds of music blended into one, jazz was born." —Wynton Marsalis

"By it's very nature, no one person can ever be the center of jazz" - Ken Burns
