This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is about the life and career of jazz musician Kid Ory. The book, which covers Ory’s life and career during the period from 1900 to 1933, suggests that Ory arrived at the scene at the same time as the music itself; that they reached maturity together, and ultimately faded from the scene together. It also considers the role of Ory as the bridge between the earliest jazz pioneers, including Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, and Jelly Roll Morton.

Keywords:   Kid Ory, jazz musician, jazz pioneers, Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton
