What is Hot Jazz?

Hot Jazz, New Orleans style, Trad Jazz, Classic Jazz, San Francisco style ... call it what you like, but we all like it! It's been America's top-shelf entertainment for decades and it still is.  Sprung from roots in marches (Bourbon St Parade), dances (Big Bear Stomp), ragtime (Alexander's Ragtime Band), and the blues (Tin Roof Blues) near the end of WW-I and just gets hotter and better.  Runs right up into swing.  We love it!  We play it, we dance to it, we relax and listen to it, with our friends both old and new. Come on along - join in at one of our events and enjoy this great music with us!

Our dancin' pals over at SwingColumbus put together an excellent blog post - "The Birth of Jazz - A Short and Sweet Summary" which we appreciate and recommend.
