In this video segment from Jazz for Young People: What is New Orleans Jazz?, famed trumpeter Wynton Marsalis returns to his hometown of New Orleans with his band to teach kids about jazz music; specifically, the origins of New Orleans jazz. The piece the band plays in this segment is called the думSt. Louis Blues.дуќ The "St. Louis Blues" was composed in 1914 by W.C. Handy, who was known as "the Father of the Blues." Although it was composed in the blues style, a form of music that emerged from the spirituals and work songs of African Americans, it is an important song for musicians of jazz. It was also one of the first blues songs to become an American pop song.
