In and around New Orleans in the early 20th century, black, white, and Creole musicians constructed a music based in improvisation that reflected the urban and rural anomalies present in a city still strongly sutured to the countryside. This article examines the complicated ways that race, ethnicity, and culture helped shape the creation of jazz music by focusing on two groups of musicians: Jelly Roll Morton, Jack Laine, and Buddy Bolden; and their musical ancestors, Sidney Bechet, the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, and Joe Oliver. The differences between these two groups highlight the enormous impact New Orleans society had on early jazz.
