Throughout Dorset the traditional jazz style means that the tunes played have a beginning a middle and an end which most people like, and are suitable for listening to in a concert situation or for dancing.

Traditional Jazz is the name applied to the earliest form of music that jazz bands played in New Orleans, it was very popular in the nineteen twenties as a social music, where jazz bands entertained at any 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 bands of up to seven musicians. It is an improvisational music where each player in the band re-arranges the tune as they play. 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.

The original form of jazz had a revival starting in the USA in the ninteen fourties with jazz bands spreading across the world and has continued to be a popular and entertaining music today. It became known as trad jazz in the UK.
