Didn't jazz spawn from the "Blues"?
So all contemporary music comes from Blues? Or did Blues and Jazz develop simultaneously?
And don't forget jazz came from ragtime and dixieland, and if you trace it all back far enough, it goes to a person banging on a hollow log with a stick.
The only question is what gave him(her) the inspiration to pick up the stick and hit log in the first place.
