The word “jazz,” spelled “jass” in the early years, began as a West Coast slang term and was used to refer to the music of Chicago, in about 1915. From its beginning in the early 20th century, jazz has spawned a variety of subgenres: New Orleans Dixieland dating from the early 1910s, Big Band-style swing from the 1930s and 1940s, “bebob” from the 1940s, and a variety of Latin jazz fusions, just to identify some of the early genres. As the music has spread around the world it has drawn on national and regional music cultures, its aesthetics being adapted to its varied environments and giving rise to many distinctive styles.
