(that was when it was recorded)
One of the best jazz bands in Sussex play for an afternoon tea.
Traditional Jazz is the name applied to the earliest form of music that jazz bands developed in New Orleans (it wasn't known as jazz then but was called hot music), it was very popular in the 1920s 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.
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 on the day.
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 1950s.
