Many of the songs jazz musicians play were written by Jewish-Americans, like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern and Richard Rodgers.

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.

Jazz was born in New Orleans about 100 years ago (early 20th century), but its roots can be found in the musical traditions of both Africa and Europe. In fact, some people say that jazz is a union of African and European music. From African music, jazz got its: rhythm and "feel"

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 😒)
