This chapter focuses on the stories of several popular jazz musicians. The accounts in this chapter are from the author's personal encounters with these individuals. Some of these musicians began their career during the first years of jazz, and even helped create the genre. Other musicians became popular during the peak of the Jazz Age or during the revival years, when traditional jazz reclaimed its place as the original indigenous music of the United States. Benny Carter and Jelly Roll Morton are just two of the musicians presented in this chapter.

Keywords:   jazz musicians, Jazz Age, revival years, traditional jazz, original indigenous music, Benny Carter, Jelly Roll Morton
