    You quoted my post, but you're mistaken about the content. I put the song in that post, and it was LDjr's jazz cover of Old Town Road. The original has more weeks at Billboard #1 than any song in history...Elvis, Beatles, Whitney, Mariah, Madonna, Britney...anybody.

    This and Iron Man movies is our culture in the 21st century.

    Play Jazz and other music while you can; looks like the end time is near for music as we have known it.
    19 straight weeks atop the Hot 100 is a record. No pun intended. Country/rap is a thing and Billy Ray made up for Achy Breaky Heart. I like Old Town Road. Makes me want to ride a horse just because..

    Is it true that “jazz” was first played in whorehouses in and around New Orleans?

    Finally I read the article referred in the OP. It seems it does not even try to answer its created question, instead a rant on jazz police, without describing the authors incidents or experiments with the jazz police. The repeating statements about how the jazz police is wrong, and how open is jazz. Of course any police like attitude on art or taste is a bad thing.

    The very first statement about jazz is not a genre because it has 100 years history leads nowhere. Classical music also has long history, this must not prevent us to think about as a category (if one insist to not use the genre term)

    I think the author in its battle against the jazz police is missing the point, and what is more disturbing, the author missing the difference between freedom and opennes. Freedom is necessary for all creative human activity, so freedom is essential element of jazz, but this does not mean limitless opennes, which would lead to resolving and vanishing jazz in the "big open music universe"

    But more likely started in Africa since all the early proponents of blues and ragtime, from which came jazz, were African-Americans, carried in the genes. Depends how you look at it.

    Quantum physics probably started with Newton, and before that Descartes. in the late 1600's. Everything has a beginning.

    The origins of screwing, of course, are lost in the mists of antiquity

    There would have been no jazz without the environment of New Orleans.
