Many consider jazz to be the only true form of Americana culture. The earliest forms of jazz combined African tribal music and the emerging American blues. The deep emotional tone of the blues has a distinctive sound flavored by what is known "blue notes." These are notes played at a lower tone.  

Jazz debuted in the early part of the twentieth century in New Orleans, and took the country by storm among the younger generation. The Gershwin Brothers introduced it to the Broadway stage and updated its style and tempo. Jazz then went into many new and amazing directions.

Jazz performers began to tour and its sound quickly spread overseas to the café societies of London and Paris. An all time favorite for decades is Tony Bennett. Hip celebrities and several generations have come to the series of concerts with Tony touring the country and abroad since last summer. Now through the end of March he is performing in various venues in Florida.

Today, jazz and blues have taken its own form as an improvisational musical art in offbeat clubs. There isn't a city around that doesn't contain a jazz club.
