Jazz captured the mood of the time period using powerful emotion and but also incorporating dance songs for parties and clubs. Artists like Louis Armstrong and King Oliver played lead roles in pushing this music to be largely heard across cities like New York and Chicago.
The music they played had huge effects on the future. It completely revolutionized the way people thought of dance music. It also had a lot too do with introducing music that better represented your time period and location. New York was experiencing the Harlem Renaissance a time of light thoughts and heavy partying and dancing. This leads to music we listen to today.
