    Jewish immigrants to the US in the late 19th and early to mid 20th centuries had a MASSIVE influence on popular music in general. Not surprising if some of it spread to jazz.

    Jazz originated among Afro-Americans in 19th century New Orleans.However Jewish musicians and other minorities such as Hispanics did have a strong musical influence upon jazz. Jews and Afro-Americans have a shared history of struggle Jews and Afro-Americans in America have often shared neighborhoods and ghettos.Afro-American Jazz musician Louis Armstrong was taken in by a Jewish-American family.

    Idk. Jazz was influenced by classical music and European marching music. I associate nuclear weapons with Jewish people since they invented nuclear weapons. Thanks a lot Jews. That's a good contribution to human history. (Assholes 😒)
