Dixieland

 

the name of early American white jazz groups. In their music, the Dixieland players imitated the traditional Negro jazz bands of New Orleans (the first Dixieland groups arose in that city in 1915). Dixieland bands were most popular in the mid-1920’s and from the late 1930’s to the early 1940’s. Dixieland bands exist in many countries, including the USSR.
