Someday a book will be published which will devote
itself entirely to a review of jazz landmarks.
It will have to be a thick volume indeed to do justice to
a subject of historical importance and
architectural fascination. The city seemed to
spawn its characteristic sound on every corner,
in every house. This section of the present work
will not pretend to fill the need for a detailed study of places identified with New Orleans jazz. But we hope
it will point the way by outlining, in a broad sense,
the relationship between the music and some
of our town’s real estate.
