Since the birth of jazz 100 years ago, it has evolved in America to reflect that country’s culture. But jazz also moved out from America to become the globalized music we know and love. Whilst American jazz is considered by some to be the pre-eminent form of the genre, jazz that has grown in other countries challenging that belief, reflecting myriad unique cultural influences. Australia is one such country.
