This reminded me of Frederick Starr's history of jazz in ths USSR, Red and Hot. He pointed to the synchronicity of jazz' s appearance as more than a local music and the Russian Revolution. He reckons the ODJB's first recordings were released five days before the February revolution. And Storyville was closed down five days after the October revolution sending New Orleans musicians across the country to find work and spread the music.
