Dixieland Jazz

Dixieland jazz is music that is centered on polyphonic melodies.

Jerry Roll Morton’s 1929 “Freakish” is a good example. Polyphony survives in a small group within a big band and is performed more or less as part of the nightly stage.

Selected bands in the band, including Tommy Dorsey’s Cranbake Seven, have satisfied the elderly audience. The last big band on stage with a Dixieland group is the Lawrence Welk Orchestra.

Also not often mentioned in the history of jazz, the re-emergence has been repeated at all times.

The Dixieland revival began in the early 1940s and was represented by a large number of young musicians in an older generation style.
