Jazz music originated in New Orleans, Louisiana, around the late ninteeth and early twentieth centuries.

The music was created mostly by African Americans, but later became acceptable in middle-class American households through radio.

There were large scale radio broadcasts in New York, Chicago, Kanasas City, and Los Angesles in 1922.

Jazz music was mostly played in big cities, which helped spread the new genre.
