This Lotza postcard perfectly captures the spirit of Jazz, with a spellbinding saxophonist playing his heart out on stage. Jazz was born in the early 20th century in the American South, specifically in New Orleans. It was a fusion of African and European music, which evolved over time by incorporating elements of blues, ragtime and swing.
Jazz pioneers include musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis, who helped popularize the genre worldwide. Over the years, jazz has evolved into different sub-genres such as bebop, cool jazz, free jazz and jazz fusion.
Jazz is more than a music, it is a cultural and social movement that has played an important role in American history by fighting racial discrimination and promoting freedom of artistic expression. Today, Jazz is appreciated worldwide and continues to inspire new generations of musicians and artists, as illustrated by this beautiful postcard by Lotza.
