BIG BAND ESSENTIALS

Jazz music sprung out of Dixieland music which sprung out of Ragtime which likely originated in New Orleans. These club musicians eventually migrated to Chicago and New York. As this style gained popularity, bandleaders began upping the ante by increasing the size of their outfits until they were considered orchestras, and the Big Bands were formed. In the 20’s, a new medium called radio brought these bands a broader audience than strictly performing on the road could ever possibly have done.
