Mississippi River. Jazz Jazz is one of America's greatest cultural achievements.
Jazz is not the result of choosing a tune, but an idea that is created first in the mind and then inspired by one's passion. Jazz Cont. In the 1920s the music of Jazz began to migrate to a big band format
combining elements of ragtime, black spirituals, blues, and European music. Music & World War I Each war has its own music and WWI is no exception.
