O Inventor do Jazz

Jelly Roll Morton dizia-se o inventor do jazz e, se a afirmação parece controversa, há quem diga que é difícil refutá-la. It is evidently known, beyond contradiction, that New Orleans is the cradle of jazz, and I, myself, happened to be creator in the year 1902, many years before the Dixieland Band organized. Jazz music is a style, not compositions; any kind of music may be played in jazz, if one has the knowledge. The first stomp was written in 1906, namely “King Porter Stomp.” “Georgia Swing” was the first to be named swing, in 1907.
