This Hampshire Jazz Band in a procession

Traditional Jazz is the name applied to the earliest kind of music that jazz bands developed in New Orleans (it wasn't known as jazz then but was called hot music), it was very popular in the 1920s as a social music, jazz bands entertained for any function or social gathering, from being the entertainment at a picnic or for dancing in the dance halls.

Early live jazz was usually played by small jazz groups of up to seven musicians. It is an improvisational music where each player in the band re-arranges the tune as they go. If you hear the same band perform the same tune twice it shouldn't sound the same as the musician improvises to reflect the audience, the event and, how they are feeling on the day.

The original sort of jazz had a revival starting in the USA in the ninteen forties with jazz and swing bands spreading across the world and has continued to be a popular and entertaining music today. A particularly British version became known as trad jazz in the UK during the 1950s.
