New Orleans Brass Bands

While "Brass Band Music is not Jazz", many of the great New Orleans Jazz musicians play in New Orleans Brass Bands for both social, economic, and personal reasons.  

 

According to Don Marquis author of "In Search for Buddy Bolden" brass bands helped to influence the first generation of Jazz musicians, because Brass Bands provided both social and economic opportunities for many of the early jazzmen. Additionally, Brass Bands provided the musical entertainment at many social events at the turn of the century.
