Cool fat cat. Friendly staff. Date of experience: December The music of New Orleans assumes various styles of music which have often borrowed from earlier traditions.
New Orleans , Louisiana , is especially known for its strong association with jazz music , universally considered to be the birthplace of the genre.
The earliest form was dixieland , which has sometimes been called traditional jazz , 'New Orleans', and 'New Orleans jazz'. However, the tradition of jazz in New Orleans has taken on various forms that have either branched out from original dixieland or taken entirely different paths altogether.
New Orleans has also been a prominent center of funk , home to some of the earliest funk bands such as The Meters. The African influence on New Orleans music can trace its roots at least back to Congo Square in New Orleans in , when slaves would congregate there to play music and dance on Sundays.
African music was played as well as local music, including that of local white composers, such as Louis Moreau Gottschalk. Along with European musical forms that were popular in the city, including the brass band traditions, the cultural mix laid the groundwork for the New Orleans musical art forms to come.
By , the local paper—the daily Picayune —ran a scathing article complaining about the emergence of brass bands in the city, which it stated could be found on every corner.
The term "jazz" early on often spelled "jass" did not become popular until the mid and late s, when New Orleans musicians first rose to prominence in other parts of the USA and the New Orleans style needed a new name to differentiate it from the nationally popular ragtime.
Before then, the New Orleans style was frequently simply called "ragtime" Sidney Bechet continued to call his music "ragtime" throughout his life , along with such local terms as "hot music" and "ratty music".
The local New Orleans dance music style was already distinctive in the 19th century. When this style became what was later known as "jazz" remains a matter of debate and definition, although most New Orleans music historians believe what became known as New Orleans style jazz was the product of a series of developments, probably reaching its famous form no earlier than the s and no later than the mid s.
By the s a man by the name of Poree hired a band led by cornetist Buddy Bolden , many of whose contemporaries as well as many jazz historians consider to be the first prominent jazz musician.
The music was not called jazz at this time, consisting of marching band music with brass instruments and dancing.
If anything, Bolden could be said to have been a blues player. The actual term "jazz" was first "jass", the etymology of which is still not entirely clear.
The connotation is sexual in nature, as many of the early performers played in rough working class venues.
Despite colorful stories of midth century writers, the prostitution district known as Storyville was no more important in the development of the music than the city's other neighborhoods, but did play a role in exposing some out of town visitors to the style.
Many instruments used were often acquired second-hand at pawn shops, including used military band instruments. The Creole people of New Orleans also contributed greatly to the evolution of the artform, though their own music became heavily influenced by the pioneering work of Bolden.
New Orleans-born musicians such as Louis Armstrong , Sidney Bechet and Jelly Roll Morton all recalled the influence Bolden had on the direction of the music of New Orleans Armstrong himself had no memory of Bolden, but was told about him by his mentor King Oliver and jazz itself.
New Orleans had experienced a large wave of migration from the Italian region of Sicily between the late s and early s.
African American music began incorporating Afro-Cuban musical motifs in the nineteenth century, when the habanera Cuban contradanza gained international popularity.
The habanera was the first written music to be rhythmically based on an African motif. From the perspective of African American music , the habanera rhythm also known as congo ,  tango-congo ,  or tango.
Musicians from Havana and New Orleans would take the twice-daily ferry between both cities to perform and not surprisingly, the habanera quickly took root in the musically fertile Crescent City.
John Storm Roberts states that the musical genre habanera, "reached the U. With Gottschalk, we see the beginning of serious treatment of Afro-Caribbean rhythmic elements in New World art music.
For the more than quarter-century in which the cakewalk , ragtime , and proto- jazz were forming and developing, the habanera was a consistent part of African American popular music.
It is reasonable to assume that tresillo-based rhythms were performed in Congo Square by Caribbean slaves. There are examples of tresillo-like rhythms in a few African American folk musics such as the foot stomping patterns in ring shout and the post-Civil War drum and fife music.
Comparing the music of New Orleans with the music of Cuba , Wynton Marsalis observes that tresillo is the New Orleans "clave". Morton stated, "Now in one of my earliest tunes, "New Orleans Blues", you can notice the Spanish tinge.
