Jass on Jackson Square

JACKSON SQUARE
Jass                                  Jazz

In the early 1900's there was this sound that was edgy, sexy, and dangerous...it flowed out of the black neighborhoods on to the streets of the French quarter edging out more refined popular dances of the day.  No one is quite sure how Jass changed to Jazz, and some say that music was a bit different and lost forever, but whatever, it was the birth of what we know as jazz today.
