and brassy jazz
style typical of the southern US
, especially New Orleans
, in the first half of the 20th century
. Dixieland jazz
is related to ragtime
, a somewhat earlier style.
Dixieland jazz is typically played by an ensemble including a banjo and lots of brass (a trombone and trumpet at the very least). Think of the jazzy versions of "When the Saints Go Marching In", a classic of Dixieland jazz, and you'll understand what Dixieland sounds like.
