Episode Summary

EDIT
Jazz begins in New Orleans, 19th century America's most cosmopolitan city, where the sound of marching bands, Italian opera, Caribbean rhythms, and minstrel shows fills the streets with a richly diverse musical culture.

Soon after the start of the new century, people are calling it jazz.moreless
