Review: The Jazz & Blues Art Box

The roots of jazz — according to sources such as scholars, musicians and jazz aficionados — derive from a “union of African and European music.” Connecting the American origins of the birth of jazz music dates back to New Orleans about 100 years ago — and its most important originator Louis Armstrong. Fast forward to the present and we have a rich history of musicianship that has driven this particularly American-based genre of sound. And before jazz, we have the blues — an origin historically accepted as evolving from “African spirituals, chants, work songs, field hollers, rural fife and drum music, revivalist hymns and country dance music.”
