Traditional jazz developed in New Orleans, a port in Louisiana. In the 1920-s in New Orleans beautiful music filled the streets and cafes. The black and poor singers sang about their hard lives. Their music, jazz, ragtime and blues soon travelled to Europe. It was the time when the black music entered the whites` culture changing the lifestyle of the people all over the world. The fist well-known jazz soloist was Lois Armstrong. He introduced new ideas to jazz and was known as the “King of Jazz”. Jazz spread to Chicago and Kansas City, later to New York. As Negroes travelled north looking for job. White people began playing, bands grew bigger, with saxophones, more trumpets trombones, a piano
and sometimes a singer.

P4: In the1940-s and 1950-s new styles of music emerged. Swing, rock-n-roll and singers like Jerry lee lewis and Chuck Berry destroyed the lows of morality that were imposed on the people by the Church for centuries. In the 1950s Elvis Presley became the King of rock-n- roll in the USA. The music travelled to Europe soon. It was especially popular among the teenagers. The young people disagreed with their parents, wore jeans and danced to their rock-n-roll records. The parents were really shocked by the music their children adored.
P5: Elvis Presley was known as “ The King of rock-n-roll”. He was born in Mississippi in 1935. At the age of 13, Elvis and his family moved to Memphis, Tennessee. There Elvis recorded his first song in 1954. He sold millions of records, served in the army, moved tj Hollywood and appeared in 33 films. Elvis`s songs are still popular today. One of his best songs is – “Love me tender”. ( звучит песня)
