This was our 3rd third visit to the super-famous and super-respected North Sea Jazz Festival. It was the second date of the European summer festivals, and we rose to the challenge with an electrifying set filled to the brim with hits.

Jazz evolved simultaneously in the 1920s in New Orleans, Chicago, and Kansas City , performed by both black and white ensembles and orchestras. As it developed from its Dixieland forms, jazz styles ranged from the hot jazz of Louis Armstrong to the “ symphonic ” jazz of Paul Whiteman ’ s (1890 – 1967) band. Hot jazz, one of the first influential developments of jazz, featured a strong soloist whose variations on the melody and driving momentum were accompanied by an expert ensemble of five or seven players. The idea of soloists playing in relation to backup ensembles also worked easily with larger bands, which began to form in the 1920s.
