     New Orleans, Dixieland Style Jazz

The terms New Orleans, or Dixieland style jazz, are used interchangeably, and are frequently called "Traditional" jazz.  It began in New Orleans in the early years of the 20th century and was always meant for dancing.  It quickly spread to Chicago and NYC.  The "Dixieland" name is a reference to the Old South, and is one of the earliest styles of jazz music.

     Louis Armstrong's All-Stars was the band which most popularized, and was most identified with this style.  A great lead trumpet is a must!

 Early "greatest hits" that are still popular today include  Basin Street Blues, When the Saints Go Marching In, St. James Infirmary, St. Louie Blues, Some of These Days, After You've Gone, What a Wonderful Life, Dream a Little Dream of Me, When You're Smiling, All of Me, Only You, and On the Sunny Side of the Street.
