Overview


Jazz-it was America's first truly indigenous music. Starting in the red-hot clubs of New Orleans, jazz made its way north and settled in Chicago. The Windy City became a focal point for musicians, and many jazz legends made names for themselves here, including Jelly Roll Morton, Joe "King" Oliver, and Louis Armstrong. As jazz grew in popularity, Chicago became a hub of musical genius. Jimmy McPartland, Muggsy Spanier, and Benny Goodman were just a few of the artists who benefited from the influx of talent into their hometown. From these early days, jazz has spread to influence musical styles worldwide.

Destination Chicago Jazz is a virtual tour of the city's most influential jazz havens, telling the story of the amazing musicians and the unparalleled musical phenomenon they created. Readers will find images of the many world-famous theatres that lined State Street, the hot jazz clubs that made the city's South Side a musical Mecca, and the celebrated players that made it all possible. Destination Chicago Jazz provides a captivating history of the beginnings of jazz on the South Side, downtown's golden age, and the quick and far-reaching effect the music had on the city's North and West Sides.
