About this collection

Introducing The Joy of Blues and Jazz

Beginning as a form of African American folk music, the blues was born in America's Mississippi Delta region in the 19th century. Its popularity spread across the US and the world and paved the way for the likes of rock, pop, soul and of course, jazz. Through blues’ bassy grooves and jazz’s improvisational swing, the two have stood the test of time and laid the foundations for much of the music we know and love today.
