On the heels of the Ragtime Era, the music
scene was bubbling with a creative energy
that was being felt all over the country.
New Orleans, the most dynamic center for the new music, was sending its sounds
and styles to the northern urban centers where the local musicians took up the
cause. The Jazz Age had begun! Hear these new styles from Barrelhouse to
Dixieland to Stride Piano and more.
