Buddy Bolden
(full name: Charles "Buddy" Bolden)
African American cornetist and key figure in New Orleans rag-time music
(1877-1931)



The legendary Buddy Bolden is often credited with inventing "jass" (later renamed "jazz"). He was a masterful cornetist who played in an improvisational style and who set up his own band in New Orleans in the last years of the 19th century.
