Jazz was born in New Orleans in the late 1800’s. It rapidly moved into an International form of entertainment and musical expression. Today was created by Herbie Hancock in 2011 as a member of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Culture Organization. There are times when jazz gets beyond the average listener, becoming an art form for those musicians who require a more expressive form of music.
