Views on the History and Definition of Jazz
Click here to return to the Articles page

The links below are to original articles concerning the origin, development and classification of jazz. They are not intended to be definitive in any way, and reflect the views of the author as well as portray factual events and quotes. My hope is that you will find some food for thought about the who, what, where, why, when and how of jazz. Please enjoy them.
