The birthplace of jazz music

Jazz music in America
I love jazz music. The city of New Orleans in America is the birthplace of jazz music.
Why was jazz music born in America? In the 19th century, there were European-Americans and African-Americans. European-Americans enjoyed classical music, and African-Americans enjoyed latin music. Then, classical music combined with latin music. That is jazz!
Now, New York is known as "the sacred place of Jazz." There are many famous Jazz clubs - BLUE NOTE, VILLAGE VANGUARD, JAZZ STANDARD, and so on...
I have never been to America. I want to go there someday and listen to real Jazz.
