Ryan Linton Dr. Michelman January 8, 2007 Jazz History Reflection The part of class that has had the most impact on me so far in class has the first part of the Ken Burns documentary. This movie included a great deal of information about the earliest periods in jazz history and how jazz came about. Some of the influential names mentioned in the early history of jazz are Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, and Jelly Roll Morten. Mentioning the beginning of jazz cannot be done without including New Orleans. New Orleans was a very diverse city that included former slaves and many people of different European nationalities. Jazz is considered a mixed between multiple types of music such as ragtime and blues. Ragtime was instantly popular among young people when it was introduced because it was easy to dance to. The Blues is a form of music that is easy to play because it only involves three cords. The most important part of Blues is that it the artist is supposed to involve feeling into the song.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
