♍ Charles Joseph "Buddy" Bolden (9/6/1877 - 11/4/1931) was a cornetist and is regarded as a key figure in the development of a New Orleans style of rag-time music, which later came to be known as jazz. He was known as King Bolden and his band was a top draw in New Orleans from about 1900 until 1907, when he was incapacitated by schizophrenia (then called dementia praecox). He left no known surviving recordings, but he was known for his very loud sound and constant improvisation.
New Orleans Jazz New Orleans Jazz is different than the jazz you may find in Chicago, Memphis.... It's all good but New Orleans has something deep, low down, and soulful. I love Louisiana.
