Jazz is a music genre which first emerged in African-American communities in the 1870s. It derives from roots in blues and ragtime, with its own jazz language evolving over time through jazz fusion, Latin jazz, jazz-funk, jazz rap and other subgenres.

The origins of jazz are found in New Orleans jazz (New Orleans jazz) which developed during the late 19th century; this jazz style was heavily influenced by brass bands. In early 20th Century American jazz began to develop into more modern styles, influenced by blues and ragtime which had led to ragtime jazz becoming one of four main sub-categories . From these sub-categories many distinct styles emerged such as Dixieland including swing, jazz waltz and bebop.
