These musicians in white tie and tails at a birthday party
Traditional Jazz is the name applied to the earliest form of music that jazz bands played in New Orleans (it wasn't known as jazz then but was called hot music), it was very fashionable in the 1920's as a social music, jazz bands entertained for any function or social gathering, from being the entertainment at a picnic or for dancing in the dance halls.
The original live jazz was usually played by small groups, duos, trios, quartets and up to seven musicians. It is an improvisational music where the players in the band re-arrange 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 forties with jazz and swing 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 in the 1950's.
