Dixieland Jazz is the style of music that was popularised by the New Orleans jazz band the Original Dixieland Jass Band (later called The Original Dixieland Jazz Band) when they made the first Jazz recording in 1917.
In the USA the term Dixieland is used for any jazz style that was being played prior to the nineteen forties. Here in the UK Dixieland Jazz has become interchangable with trad or traditional jazz
This dixieland band plays classic jazz standards, ballads and popular tunes of the early twentieth century, all played in a foot tapping danceable style, that would have been recognised by the earliest jazz musicians.
