Jazz is a music genre, originated in 19th to early 20th century as interpretations of American and European classical music entwined with African and slave folk songs and the influences of West African culture, which developed from roots in blues and ragtime. With greatest appeals of the genre, the people in these countries loved jazz. Many people became jazz musicians themselves.
To some African Americans, jazz has highlighted their contribution to American society and helped bring people’s attention to black history and culture. It’s great popular music.
