First Jazz Recording Recorded. February 26, 1917

A musical revolution was about to be launched as the Original Dixieland Jass Band (yes, "jass" band) released Dixie Jass Band One-Step with Livery Stable Blues on the flipside.

Jazz was in its infancy, but at the point where recordings were commencing.  The Original Dixieland Jazz Band, as it later came to be called, was formed for the purpose of trying to developing a following for the music in New York.  They were a successful band and the first to exploit the jazz sound on recordings.
