and the origins of jazz actually came from, um, kind of ah, a marching band history and it kind of turned into jazz and it was kind of a jail for young black kids and they took up marching than instruments, and it kind of morphed into jazz. And so what happened is that kind of became Dixieland jazz and just walking down the streets daily in Bourbon Street. There are those bands today and eso you'll have, like tuba, a drum, trombone, trumpet. All of these, like traditional instruments that that started jazz 100 years ago. They're still performing there today. So you're walking down the street. There's multiple bands playing and it's it's ah, it would kind of remind you of what it would be like. Ah, 100 years ago. It was really cool on. It was just a normal day. That wasn't even Mardi Gras. That was just a normal day. And they dancing is still alive in the culture. Yeah, yeah, and it was like like European instruments, but like, um, European instruments but like Africans was using it to like African Americans and different cultures came and, like, migrated to New Orleans. Yeah, like e think because Because the French people were there and you had this mix of French, classically trained musicians and, uh, and black people from different, different, different places. So you had, like, black slaves. You had blacks from, like, Haiti. Um, you had you had kind of a whole bunch of different cultures all mixed together. And so because of that French European tradition of the instruments and then the black cultures from different places, that's kind of what invented jazz, Right? So you have any favorite musicians? Um, I dio I have a personal favorite, Ella Fitzgerald, and I actually have a very large portrait tattoo of her on my arm. And she is like She is the first lady of jazz. She's the queen of jazz as, and she recorded hundreds of albums. And she's she's very influential. Thio, I think all jazz singers because she she sang along with Louis Armstrong, and they together kind of invented what scat singing and jazz singing is today. So she is definitely one of my favorites.
