One of the best kinds of music is Jazz. So who invented Jazz? As per New Orleans Online, ‘Some will say that Jazz was born in 1895, when Buddy Bolden started his first band. Others will say 1917, when Nick LaRocca and his Original Dixieland Jazz Band recorded the first Jazz record, “Livery Stable Blues.’

Buddy Bolden is considered to be the father of Jazz music.

The music has distinct characteristics of swing and blue notes with call and responsive vocals, having its roots in Western Africa, in African-American music like blues and regimes and in European military band music.
